“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery – but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
Unity matters to God. It doesn’t automatically come in life, even in a marriage. There must be a choice, commitment and lots of forgiveness. Jesus used the example of Him as the bridegroom and we, the church, as the bride. In our marriage, Jesus totally loves us and we need to leave our old life and totally love Him.
- Lord, put love for You on our hearts.
- Jesus, help us to leave our old nature.
What has anchored your soul this week? (Hebrews 6:19)
