Marriage? Yes, marriage is really a ministry! Says who, you may ask?
Well, can you hear the word resounding from the book of Colossians?
3:18-19 (18)”Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the
Lord,” (19)”Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.”
Ephesians 5:33 “Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his
Own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”
Sadly though, husbands and wives have been blindsided by neglect and
Procrastination, which is the thief of time, the silent treatment, dominating,
Disrespect, mistrust, and jealousy. This list can go on and are like vices eating
Away at the very core of your marriage relationship. You have been blindsided!
Husbands, do you find yourselves too busy to pick-up the telephone and call
Your wife and say, “Honey, I just called to tell you I love you?” or to come home
To eat dinner with the family? When was the last time you held even a conversation
With your wife? How much longer are you going to procrastinate displaying just
How much you really love her? Wives, you too have been blind sided. When are
You going to consistently wash and iron your husband’s clothes and cook his
Food without burning up the pot? What about keeping his castle freshly cleaned.
When was the last time you clipped his finger and toe nails, or anointed him with
Oil? The word is speaking this time from the book of Romans 12:21 “Do not be
Overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Pause and calmly think about
This. In every car there is a blind spot, so as you know one must always utilize the
Two sides and the rear view mirrors. Still the blind spot remains. So it is in marriage
Relationships, there are blind spots that only Yahweh, the God who redeems can
Give the revelation.
Today (me too) lets ask Abba Father to take the blinders off so you can minister His
Love to your spouse without being judgmental. Make it a priority to speak kind words
To each other, seek to build each other. It is also very important to accept each other
For who you are, tender loving care is much needed and you will see bitterness and wrath
Flee away. Take precaution, make sure Jesus Christ is at the helm, for it is only He who
Will keep you from being blind sided. Husbands and wives it is time to take a stand, make
A one hundred percent 100% effort to display the love of Jesus Christ to each other. You
Will never ever be blind sided and your relationship with each other will grow by leaps and
Bounds! Marriage? Yes, marriage is a ministry which cannot afford to be blindsided!
