The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
God made the perfect man in Adam but he was not complete without his wife. You see none of us were designed to live alone, we were designed to have a partner that has been chosen by God to be our helper.
I am blessed to be married to my helper and soulmate. Alone I don’t know where I would be today, but together we’ve been united for 18 years and grown a beautiful family and life. So today I’m honoring my wife Heidi, who God has sent me to be my partner forever.
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:24
Its important to remember when your married that Two become One flesh. You are no longer living for yourself or a separate life. Everything you do is a reflection of your partner also. I truly believe God made marriage this way, remember you are living for your spouse also not just yourself
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her Ephesians 5:25
Another important reminder is Husbands need to love their wives just as Jesus loves us. Let reflect on how Jesus showed us his love, he was willing to sacrifice himself to save our lives. We should have that same deep love for our spouses also. A marriage will also fail unless we put Jesus in the middle.
However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:33
Finally we must also love our spouses as we love ourselves. You want your partner to be encouraging and uplifting, so you should be the same towards them. Remember Two become One flesh, you are one. Don’t do anything that you wouldn’t want done to you.
I personally want to thank God for sending me my wife, Heidi, we complete each other. She has blessed me in so many ways, and I only hope that I can do the same for her. I pray that God continues to bless and protect our family in Jesus Name Amen
