“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,”
— Eph 5:25 (NKJV)
The Bible says "He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord." (Proverbs 18:22). The third most important relationship is the relationship you have with your life partner. Your husband or wife from God is a wonderful gift.
Your marital relationship is a dramatization of the relationship Jesus has with His church. It is a love relationship and that love is the one Jesus demonstrated on the cross- selfless, sacrificial love.
Marriage unions are bound by self-denial and sacrifice. Selfishness is the recipe for many divorces today.
If you nurture your relationship with your soulmate, the benefits are limitless. When your partner is happy, you will be too. Peace will reign when you consider your lover in everything.
And the blessing of the Lord will be manifest as you treat each other in the light of the gospel. Two are better than one if they are united spirit, soul and body.
