“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her”
(Ephesians 5:25 NKJV)

Have you heard the news? The institution of marriage ordained by our Creator God as a holy covenant between a man and a women is under attack. Fornication, adultery, same sex marriage and physical abuse all threaten this holy union. The marriage relationship can be compared symbolically to the bridegroom King Jesus and his bride the church. (Revelation 19:7-9) Conflict or infidelity in the marriage relationship destroys the divine marriage imagery of Jesus the Bridegroom with his bride the church.A wife will come to her husband to feel secure and supported during difficult times. Believers have a relationship with the Lord Jesus and trust in him to support them in times of conflict. Coming to the Lord in prayer during difficult situations blesses a person with peace. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) A strategy of Satan is to ruin the supportive relationship of the husband and wife team by causing division. As a result, the symbolic image of the bridegroom King – church bride relationship will also be tarnished and people will not readily come to Jesus for support during times of need. Fight back against conflict and love your spouse.
