Sometimes God's Math Surprises Us, Like When 1+1=1

The Bible compares a husband’s position in a home to the role of Christ in His Church. Jesus served the church and gave His life for her.

When you come to the marriage altar, that’s what you do. You die! (You didn’t realize that, did you?) A marriage is death to the old life. You’re no longer single.

There’s a new person, for the two are now one. A husband is to take upon himself the form of a servant. He is to lead by loving.

He does not consider his welfare primarily; he considers her welfare in all of his decisions.

Are you the strong, independent type? Then you’re not like Jesus, who shared unconditionally and sacrificially with you.

If you are a married man, you are to satisfy the needs of your wife and share your life with her.

That means all you are and all you have is for her! God’s math for marriage is: One plus one equals one. There’s no part of our lives that we do not share.


This week, make it a priority to do or give something sacrificially to your wife.
