3. The Gospel Driven Husband

Preacher:
Passage: Colossians 3:19

'When the home is ruled according to the word of God, then angels might be asked to stay with us and they would not be out of their element.'      Charles Spurgeon

Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
(Colossians 3:19)

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
(Ephesians 5:25-33)
