Marriage. Very Simple. Very Hard.

I once heard a man say that marriage is very simple and very hard. Simple in the fact that there are really only two commands. Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church. And ladies, see that you respect your husbands. Very simple. Very hard. I would say impossible apart from the help of God Himself and His Spirit working in you and me. I can only love Debbie as Christ loved the church with His love. All other love will fail. But God’s love in and through me will always be triumphant. Same for Debbie. She can only love and respect me with the life of Christ working in and through her. The more we say, “Lord, I can’t but You can in me” the sweeter our marriages will be. Can you say, “Lord I can’t?”
