Scripture: Ephesians 5:25-29
In Ephesians 5:29 this assignment becomes even deeper still. This verse says, “For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.” Wow! This is an assignment for husbands to treat their wives as if they are without spot, without blemish. That is a tall order! What a challenge! Yet, this challenge has a purpose and that purpose is the birthing of the revelation of the full magnitude of what Christ has done for us and His purpose we are to fulfill. There is a key here that most of us have never seen. That key is how we as husbands treat our wives. Understanding this can unlock for us the fullness of the Sonship gifts and all that goes with them in faith, in relationship, in developing the same kind of relationship with us that Christ had with the Father. The key to it is choosing to treat our wives the same way Christ treats us. He made us blameless and spotless by His incomparable blood. He died for us as our perfect sacrificial offering. We as husbands need to choose to treat our wives as if they are spotless and flawless. This opens the door for the fullness of Christ to come forth in our lives. No wonder God has ordained prophetic marriages in the last days as examples of how to enter into the fullness of Christ.
