DCLM Daily Manna 26 June 2020 – Make Your Marriage Work

Topic: Make Your Marriage Work
[DCLM Daily Manna 26 June 2020 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]

Text: Ephesians 5:22-33

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.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Key Verse: “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband” – (Ephesians 5:33)

Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi

We live in an age when the once revered institution of marriage seems to be losing its lustre. Many marriages are now treated purely as a socio-economic contract. Others last for shorter periods than ever before. Some people have even devised an escape from such problems. They either opt not to be married at all or agree to co-habit without any marital commitment. Some even mindlessly contravene God’s holy standard of one man, one wife.

God does not just desire the marriage institution, but wants it to work. For this reason, He commands wives to submit themselves to their husbands. The reason is because the husband is the head of the family, as Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. Just as the Church must be subject to the Lord Jesus Christ, so must the wife do to her husband. The husband is to love his wife with the same fervour as Christ loved and died for the Church. In fact, the husband must love his wife as himself – nourishing, cherishing her in all things – and recognise that in marriage, both have become one flesh. Love from the husband must be reciprocated by reverence and honour from the wife.

Problems arise in the family because spouses are not as selfless as the Lord commands. You must put aside your own selfish interests and seek your partner’s welfare. This is what brings harmony and increases love and respect in the family. There must be sacrificial love and submission for peace to reign. Do not undermine the leadership of your husband and his interests. The husband must love his wife as himself. Mutual love and care make both of them to attain the best level possible in life as one flesh.

Thought For The Day: It takes two to make a marriage a success, and one a failure.

The Bible In One Year: 1 Kings 15-16
