How to love your wife

Jesus Christ loves
the Church
(His Bride)
so much that He gave Himself up for her!

Husbands, that’s how
to love your wives.


Ephesians 5:24 paraphrased by Mary Harwell Sayler with the help of translations on Bible Gateway.

Jesus Christ says, I love you!

I correct and discipline
those whom I love.

I correct and discipline
you, My love.

Be earnest about turning
your heart and life
toward Me.

Listen!
I’m standing at your door,
knocking.

If you sense My voice
and open your heart, I
will come in
to be with you
and sit down with you,
and together,
we shall dine.

Stay with Me, and I
will seat you near My throne,
just as My Father did for Me.

If you can hear,
listen –
listen to what the Spirit
is saying to you
who live in Me.


Revelation 3:19-22
