Although I am already married and assume most of you are as well, I think that it is still extremely important to dive into what the Bible says about marriage. Just because you are married, doesn’t mean you should stop studying or learning about God’s design for marriage. Because of this, I have decided to give myself a “refresher” this week and invite you to join me in studying each day to learn God’s Heart For Marriage.
Day 1: Genesis 2:5-25
What better way to start than at the beginning – the creation of man and woman. One of the things that always stuck out most to me was how God truly provided for Adam. He saw that man was not good alone, and created Eve. It reminds me of how God knows everything about us and provides for us – even a spouse.
Day 2: Ecclesiastes 4: 7-12
This passage reminds me of the purpose of marriage – to come together to help one another in Christ and share Christ with others.”Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” In marriage, your partner is also your helpmate and friend that can come alongside you and compliment you.
Day 3: Ephesians 5:21-33
“Submit to one another our of reverence for Christ“. This passage gives insight into the equal, defined roles of a husband and wife. It also happens to be the scripture read at our wedding.
Day 4: Proverbs 31:10-31
Love this passage about a Godly woman/wife. I know some people say it seems unattainable but my goal is to strive toward this daily. Studying this really gives you a refresher on the role of a wife and to me demonstrates sacrificial love and humility.
Day 5: Colossians 3
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters”. Without the power of Christ, I think we fail at life and our marriage. This passage really spoke to me about living for Christ in all I do.
This passage reveals more to me about the character a wife is called to have and how she is to modestly present herself.
Day 7: 1 Corinthians 13
I saved the biggie for day 7. I know this is one of the most quoted passages, but it honestly still takes me breath away. I think I could spend a week just on “love is patient”. There is so much truth and wisdom packed into this chapter about how to love your husband and others around you.
I hope that you will join me in digging into God’s word. This was just my recap of studying this week and I hope you do the same and share some insight about your study this week with other wives!
