The Husband’s Responsibility in Marriage Part 4

Session 5 | Episode 4

Conclusion

To recap:

  1. We started this series by paying attention on the Devine Order within marriage.
  2. We then had a look at two major responsibilities, eg.: Loving and Leadership

As we conclude this series I wish to highlight the following important aspects:

  1. Marriage was designed and created by God.
  2. It is God who has assigned these responsibilities to the husband for His purposes.
  3. To be successful in carying out these responsibilities husbands need God’s guidance, leadership and power

God’s guidance is contained in His word. God’s word is “profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience” (2 Timothy 3:16)

God’s leadership: In Ephesians 5:25 we read “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for her”. Christ sets the standard for husbands on how they should love their wives. That is the standard that we ought to follow.

Power: In Philippians 4:13a we read “I have all strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me…” Christ empowers us to carry out our God-given responsibilities as husbands.

“...live considerately with your wives...in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off...”

“...live considerately with your wives...in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off...”

In conclusion I wish to draw your attention to 1 Peter 3:7: in this Scripture you are urged to “live considerately with your wives…in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off”.

It is of critical importance for you as a husband to realize that God will answer or not answer your prayers based on how you live with and treat your wife. 

May God Bless you
