Daily Bible Podcast Day 339 – Ephesians 5-6, Psalm 119:1-80

October 5, 2013 in Podcasts by Nathan


“In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body.” ~Ephesians 5:28-30

A husband should treat his wife the way he would treat himself. Even more, verse 25 says to love your wife as Christ loved the church, including all the sacrifice He made.

Any time that I am on a path that is likely to hurt my wife, I need to remember that I am to love her as I love myself and that I am to sacrifice for her, the way Jesus sacrificed for the church.

Father, help me to love my wife well. I am so thankful for who she is and am always always glad that for the gift of her. Help me to always think of her above myself and be willing to sacrifice in order to treat her properly. May I never hurt but always protect.
