“Your husband is the Ephesians 5 guy.”
– Jen Weaver, A Wife’s Secret to Happiness
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
– Ephesians 5:25-27
That passage is music to my ears!
I get some help in my Christian life!
Even though I’m responsible for my own time with God and being in His presence, I get the added benefit of having a husband that looks out for my best interest in making sure I get that opportunity.
My husband is my covering. A mighty wonderful thing happens when I am under there, too. I get drenched and washed in the Word. I get an even fuller measure.
My Ephesians 5 guy is my blessing.
One can laugh at the whole “He thinks he’s God’s gift to women.” because that usually has a negative tone because a man is arrogant and not very honorable.
But may I suggest that a woman’s husband is God’s gift to her.
And to her husband, a wife is a good thing!
I’ve come to know that husband-leadership isn’t a man-made curse, it’s a God ordained blessing. –Jen Weaver, A Wife’s Secret to Happiness
