Christian Husbands: What Saith the Lord (Scripture)

JerryWorster_5438936656_cdaec02dab_bSCRIPTURE:  

1 Peter 3:7; Ephesians 5:25-28; Colossians 3:19 (NLT)


Colossians 3:19

And you husbands must love your wives and never treat them harshly.

1 Peter 3:7

In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives.   Treat her with understanding as you live together.

She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life.   If you don’t treat her as you should, your prayers will not be heard.

Ephesians 5: 25-28

And you husbands must love your wives with the same love Christ showed the church.  He gave up his life for her  to make her holy and clean, washed by baptism and God’s word.    He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish.   Instead, she will be holy and without fault.

In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies.   For a man is actually loving himself when he loves his wife.
