21. Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

#MESSAGE






Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel,
and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. 1 Peter 3:7“

It is not Gods will for His children to do so well across many areas of life and then fail in their marriage.

He wants us all to have successful Christian homes.

Today, we shall look at the secrets of making your marriage heaven on earth.

Firstly, the couple must respect each others opinion even in controversial matters.

Nobody has a monopoly on wisdom; hence they must be able to counsel each other.

A man should never feel that his wife cannot give godly counsel.

What is deficient in the husband may abound in the wife and viceversa.

Secondly, the wife must submit to the lordship of her husband.

Some women have been misled by modern concepts to think submission is stupidity or slavery; this is not true.

Obedience to Gods word – no matter how illogical, brings success in life, including marriage.

Years ago, one of my daughters-in-Christ came in for counselling because of cracks in her marriage.

I realized she was arrogant, and the Lord asked me to tell her to be submissive to her husband.

She disagreed, saying she was just as educated as he.

When the crisis in her home persisted and I would offer no alternative, she complied and peace returned.

Thirdly, the husband must love his wife unconditionally.

Dont love her because of what you can gain from her; rather, love her selflessly as Jesus loves the church.

This is the only way to guarantee success in marriage (Ephesians 5:25 ).

Jesus loves us with all our imperfections and is still working to perfect the saints for the last day.

With these foundational truths and other lessons the Holy Spirit will teach as we study the word of God on marriage, every believing
couple can rest assured of a home that is heaven on earth.

PRAYER POINT


Father, let my home be like heaven on earth, in the mighty name of Jesus.

HYMN: GOD GIVE US CHRISTIAN HOMES


1. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the Masters will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty

God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes.

Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes.

3. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the mother in queenly quest,
Strives to show others Thy way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honoured
guest;
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes.

4. God give us Christian homes
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so,
Homes where the altar fire burn and glow;
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes.
