Samson married three times, and at all times, he married his enemies.

There are six lessons we can learn from tragedy of Samson  Joshua 13 vs. 2-3)

  1. Make sure you marry a strong believer and s solid born again Christian
  2. Keep your mind open and patiently listen to the advice and counsel of your parents and pastors.
  3. Be guided by love, not lust. Check the character of your partner and don’t be captured by her beauty. Delilah was a beautiful woman with a beautiful name, but she did not have a beautiful character.

Marriage principles- Wives submit to your husband

Posted on Updated on

By

Pastor E.A Adeboye

“Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake” (Rom. 13:5)

READ: Romans 13:1-5

 

Wives are commanded to submit to their husbands in all things (Eph 5:22-24).

Some wives find if difficult to submit to their husbands just because they are taller, richer, better placed, or more educated. Even if you were the president of a nation, God still expects that wife to submit to her husband in all things.

Submission is an act of faith. That means if you can submit to your husband in spite of contrary opinions and situations, it will be counted to you as righteousness. Similarly, the woman is expected to submit to her husband as if she was submitting to Christ (Eph. 5:22).

 This means that it is not the man that the really submitting to, but the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. It also means the extent to which a wife can submit to her husband s the extent to which she can submit to Jesus Christ. A woman who cannot submit to her husband will not also submit to Jesus.

The Foundation

Courtship is a relationship with an objective: two people building a home with a solid foundation to show themselves approved of God.

‘Be ye not unequally yoke together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what concord has Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God: as God hath said, I will dwell in them and walk in them and I will be their God, and they shall be my people’ 11 Cor6:14-16 ‘

A Christian is supposed to marry Christian. We are not to marry unbelievers.

If you have receive Jesus as your saviour and are not married, stay in the Lord and wait patiently for His word. You will not have to play guessing or pick-and choose games. The Lord will direct you as you seek His face. ‘So that thou fined favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Read the rest of this entry »

Tips for happy marriage:Why men must love their wives?

Posted on Updated on

Pastor Adeboye

Memorize; and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us (Rom. 5:5)

Read Ephesians

“ Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also love the church, and gave himself for it” (Eph. 5;25).

On fundamental command every married man must observe is to love his wife. If after you sought God and He led you to your wife, yet you observed that you do not have love for her, do not panic. Just ask!

If God is in that relationship, as you ask, you would be given and you would begin to grow in love towards your spouse.

Every Christian husband has the capacity to love. You are a love child of a living God, hence love has been spread in your heart by the Holy spirit (Rom.5:5). The summary of all that is expected from a man toward his wife is love.

Some husbands say that they find it difficult to love their wives. Loving your wife is not optional but a must. If you fail to love your wife, God will hold you responsible for the failure of your home.

Everyone loves himself or herself. The extent to which you love yourself becomes a yardstick for measuring your love for others. God says you must love your wife as yourself. Unfortunately, some people do not love themselves.

If you are a drunkard, smoker or drug addict, you hate your self. If you are a thief, fornicator, homosexual or lesbian, you hate yourself because you are destroying your body. Any man who does not love himself cannot love his wife. What you cannot do to your self should not be done too your spouse.

If you love your wife, it will show on her. You will identify a woman who is unloved by her husband from her dressing. If you show no concern for your wife’s dressing and you allow her to put on rags, be shabby or look haggard, it is evident that you do not love her.

If her body has any scar from slaps, punches or floggings on your account, it shows you do not love her. If she is looking skinny and starved of food, sex and companionship, you hate her. If your wife’s face is always gloomy, sad and depressed, it shows you do not love her.

If you love your wife, it will show on her, her health, countenance and appearance. Does your professed love for your wife reflect on her body?

Bible tips for marriage success

Posted on Updated on

By

Pastor Adeboye.


Memorize “Behold also the ships, which though

they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are

they turned about with a very small helm, wither

so ever the government listeth” (Jas 3:4)

Read: Ephesians 5:22-24

Wives submit yourselves unto your own husband, as unto the Lord” (Ephesians 5:22-24).

The Bible give the blueprint for success in marriage. If you want Heaven in your home, follow the marriage manual-the Bible. It is not enough to identify your God-given partner, even though this is very important.

If you know God’s will in marriage but fail to adhere to His instruction, your marriage cannot be a pleasurable as God planned it to be. Wives are commanded to submit to their husbands. Whether he is younger, less educate, shorter, smaller, or poorer is immaterial.

James 3:4 says, “Behold also the ship, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm with so ever the governor listeth. The wife may be the large ship and the husband the tiny helm, yet to arrive at God destination for the family, she must  submit to his authority.

The woman may have the greatest and most laudable ideas concerning the home and running the family, yet God expects her to put them at the feet of her husband. If your family must arrive at God’s planned destination you have to submit to your husband.

Another reason a woman must submit – voluntarily herself to her husband is because he is her cover. A wife that refuses to submit to her husband comes outside the cover that God has placed over the individual and opens herself to enemy fire.

Similarly, a woman must submit under her husband because God never designed her to be the head of the man. In any home where the woman is the head and the man is the receiving orders, there will be trouble.

T he Lord Jesus Christ cannot be the head of the home. Submission to one’s husband is in obedience to God’s word and therefore an act of faith. In what area should a woman submit? Verse 24 says in every thing. No exceptions! Some women submit in some mild areas but when it comes to an issue she has vested interest, she will not submit.

Some sisters find it hard to submit in the area of finances, but the scriptures says your submission must be total before Heaven will count you obedient. To what extent is your submission to your husband? Ask God for grace to submit to your husband.
