What is one way that our marriages can be strengthened?
Joel Beeke explains in this video that a husband is commanded to love his wife as Christ loved the church. The wife is commanded to respect her husband. One of the key things that we have lost today is that both a husband and a wife must give each other space by adhering to their own principles.
The husband should not be looking at the wife and say that she's not respecting him. Instead, he is to continue to love his wife, regardless of how the wife acts towards him. The same should be the case for the wife.
Ephesians 5:25-26 (NKJV) - "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,"
