PRAY OVER THIS

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”

PONDER THIS

The Bible says a husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the Church, and that is an unconditional love. It is not performance-based love: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6). When you have unconditional love as Christ has for the Church, let me tell you what it’s going to do for your home: It’s going to give security in the place of fear. It’s going to give peace in the place of guilt. And it’s going to give joy that will replace anger. This kind of love is an act of the will. How does God love us? Do you think God loves us romantically? Do you think God loves us because we’re lovely? No, God loves us as an act of His will.

  • Would you say you regularly love as an act of the will? Why or why not?
  • What makes this difficult?

PRACTICE THIS

How might you practically show love to someone as an act of will this week? Take steps to actually do this.
