Committing to Your Spouse/Family

“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord … Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her … Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right … Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

– Ephesians 5:22, 25; 6:1, 4

“The cause of division and discord in families and in the church is separation from Christ. To come near to Christ is to come near to one another. The secret of true unity in the church and in the family is not diplomacy, not management, not a superhuman effort to overcome difficulties—though there will be much of this to do—but union with Christ.” – The Adventist Home, 179


Your spouse and family are people in your life towards whom you have a solemn duty: To love, support, and disciple them into a joyful, loving, relationship with Jesus. Will you today commit to extending the same grace, forgiveness, and love that Jesus has shown to you to your spouse and family? Is it your desire to be a spiritual leader for your home? Ask Jesus today for a deeper walk and union with Him so that you can be a better reflection of Him to your spouse and family.
