2 Corinthians 11:1-3 NLT
I hope you will put up with a little more of my foolishness. Please bear with me. For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband-Christ. But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent.
We are the sons and daughters of God. We are the bride of Christ. And He is grooming us to be a pure bride without a spot or blemish for our wedding day with Him.
Speaking of a wedding and therefore marriage. It is wonderful to live in America where husbands and wives live under Biblical principles.
Ephesians 5:24-26 NLT
As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God's word.
A marriage succeeds when those principles are followed. When they each treat each other with love and respect. When each realizes that their happiness together is not 50-50. That each is 100% responsible for the outcome.
I can't imagine living in another area of the world where wives are treated like servants created to serve their masters...their husbands.
In Christ, we are all equal. Male and female. In heaven as well. Made to worship the Father in all we do now and forevermore.
