Love….God’s Nature

CPYF  blog demonstrate God's nature KO

Loving your wife, is your primary responsibility as a husband. When God tells you to love your wife, He simply means you should exhibit His very nature to her because He is love (1 John 4:8). That means whatever love will do, however it is shown, whatever it endures, must come natural to you through your conscious efforts. We are told love is patient, kind, etc (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). We are told love covers all errors (1 Peter 4:8), we are told there is no fear in love (1 John 4:18), we are told whoever does not love, does not know God, among others. It’s true that it is difficult to love in the energy of the flesh, that is why God has made His grace available for you to do so with ease. It is God’s love that drew you to Him, therefore your love should do the same for your wife (and children); it is what makes all the difference in the home.  My father in law, Dr David Oyedepo once said that if the husband truly accepts the responsibility to love his wife as commanded, there will be nothing like crisis in any home. That is so true. The love you demonstrate to your wife has so much power to change her for good and bring out the best in her. Anytime you are reminded of your duty, find strength in the fact that you are simply demonstrating God’s nature. Single? Be ready to that same nature without reservation. Married? Keep doing your part and she will come around. If all has been well, as you keep loving, things will only get better.Please know that everything required of you to bring out the best in your wife and have a stable family life is wrapped up in that simple, yet profound word: love!
