Today I'm just sharing a couple thoughts that have stuck with me from the past couple evening's premarital counselling sessions. We've worked our way through the sections on the priority of unity, and the godly husband, and are now talking through the session on the godly that I share the link for below. There's a lot of excellent material here that can provide hours of conversation :-), so I'm just giving you one thought that was very convicting for me -
"Obedience to the husband, like to Christ, is to be willingly, cheerfully, quickly, fully from the heart.
The motivation for obedience is not duty, but love for the husband (and Christ)."
"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:6,8-1
