Today I reflect on how CHRIST is about to DIE for his people in THREE DAYS!
I can only imagine what he was thinking. What he was feeling. How much he may have wanted to negotiate and point blame to get out of His sacrifice.
HE DIED FOR HIS CHURCH.
HE IS THE BRIDEGROOM TO HIS BRIDE.
HE HAS SACRIFICED ALL SO WE MAY HAVE LIFE....SO WE MAY KNOW LOVE.
This is what God asks from each of us.
Especially in marriage.
He asks husbands to lay down their life..their pride...their vanities...their struggles....and offer them up for the LOVE of their LIFE.....THEIR BRIDE.
BUT US WIVES....we MUST lift them up and TRUST they are wanting ONLY greatness for us.
The problem is WE ARE HUMAN.....WE ARE STAINED BY SIN.....so our walk and attempts are flawed. Does it mean we give up!? NO!!! We keep working each day to be our best self.
Husbands MUST keep trying each day to be like CHRIST and lay down their "lives" for their wives.
Wives MUST keep trying each day to honor and respect their husband as CHRIST desired his people to honor and respect THE FATHER.
I want to share with you an amazing posting of a dear friend of mine. Use it to reflect up during this week of holy week in how can WE ALL BE BETTER SPOUSES TO EACH OTHER....in each of our given unique roles. Follow the link: DEAR FRIEND!
ASK YOURSELF THIS WEEK....
If you are a man:
HOW CAN YOU BETTER SERVE YOUR SPOUSE AS CHRIST SERVED HIS CHURCH!?
If you are a woman:
HOW CAN YOU BETTER LAY DOWN YOUR WILL AND TRUST YOUR SPOUSE WILL LEAD YOU TO GOD!?
TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH on TUESDAY!
Hugs and blessings always my dear readers....friends...family....
