Serving As Husbands and Wives

And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. . . . For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. Ephesians 5:21-22, 25

A mutual attitude of service on the part of both husband and wife leads to a growing marriage. But the service must be mutual. A submitting, serving wife and a tyrannical, demanding husband will never create a happy marriage. A domineering wife and a passive husband will also fail to find marital fulfillment.

The husband must learn to serve his wife as Christ served the church. The wife must serve her husband as she serves the Lord. Mutual service brings mutual joy.

Tennis players spend hours each week improving their serves. Should you give any less attention to improving the one aspect of your relationship that has the potential to make it great? Developing your serve could make the difference between success and failure in your marriage.

Are you willing to ask God to give you the attitude of Christ toward your spouse? To help you serve as he served? It’s a prayer God will answer, and it will lead you to a growing marriage
