You are not a god
created by human hands.
You are not a god
dependent on any
mortal man.
You are not a god in need of
anything we can give.
By Your plan,
that's just the way it is.

A man and his marriage:
A biblical portrait of marriage
Ephesians 5:21–33 (NASB95)
21 and be subject to one another in
the fear of Christ.
22 Wives, be subject to your own
husbands, as to the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the
wife, as Christ also is the head of the
church, He Himself being the Savior of
the body.
24 But as the church is subject to
Christ, so also the wives ought to be to
their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as
Christ also loved the church and gave
Himself up for her,
26 so that He might sanctify her,
having cleansed her by the washing
of water with the word,
27 that He might present to Himself
the church in all her glory, having no
spot or wrinkle or any such thing;
but that she would be holy and
blameless.
28 So husbands ought also to love
their own wives as their own bodies.
He who loves his own wife loves
himself;
29 for no one ever hated his own
flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it,
just as Christ also does the church,
30 because we are members of His
body.
31 FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS
FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED
TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME
ONE FLESH.
32 This mystery is great; but I am
speaking with reference to Christ
and the church.
33 Nevertheless, each individual
among you also is to love his own
wife even as himself, and the wife
must see to it that she respects her
husband.
The best gift you can give your wife is a
man who is completely surrendered to
the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Marriage is a picture
a. a picture of the gospel
b. a picture of Christ and His Church
Marriage is a partnership
In this partnership, God has clearly
stated in scripture that the husband is to
model his role after Christ. Jesus Christ
is the model for husbands.
Jesus models the responsibilities and
the role for a husband:
Jesus was a servant leader. The word
“leader” is the noun, whereas the word
“servant” is the modifier.
Leadership is to be loving: the
dominate characteristic of Christ’s love
for His church was sacrifice.

Ruth Bell Graham said “a successful
marriage is the union of two forgivers.”
“Every governor of a family ought
to look upon himself as obligated to
act in three capacities: as a prophet
to instruct; as a priest to pray for
and with; and as a king to govern,
direct and provide for them
It is true, indeed that the latter of
these, their kingly office, they are
not so frequently deficient in … but
as for the former, their priestly and
prophetic offices … they care for no
such thing.” George Whitfield

Take Away:
Using the “10 Questions” handout,
find a time when you and your
spouse can meet to pray and ask one
another the questions from each list.
I encourage you to find a place that is
quiet, private, and you are unlikely to
be interrupted.
Lifting My Wife Through Prayer
Lord, I lift my wife to You today and pray,
according to Your Word, that:
• she will know Your will for her life,
pleasing You in all respects and
bearing fruit in every good work
(Colossians 1:9-10).
• her physical health will be strong
and her stamina high (Isaiah 40:2831).
• You will release her from worry or
guilt over things she is not
responsible for or in control of
(Matthew 6:25-34; Luke 12:22-32).
• her agenda and tasks today would
go smoothly and that she would
accomplish much (2 Thessalonians
2:16-17; 3:1-4, 13).
• a godly mentor would come into her
life (Titus 2:3-5).
• she will not gossip or keep company
with those who do (Proverbs 20:19; 1
Timothy 3:11).
• You will give her discernment and
wisdom and protect her from those
who would deceive her (1 Timothy
2:14; James 1:5-8).
“Following Jesus’ pattern of
intercession in John 17, … a husband
should pray for his wife that …”
• God would be gloried in and through
her life.
• she would know God and grow in
knowledge and experience of Him.
• God would keep her safe in Him
(protect her from despair,
discouragement, and faithlessness
in the midst of trials).
• she would be morally pure and set
apart for His service
• she would be one with God, with
her husband, and with women in
the body of Christ.
• she would stay faithful to Christ to
the end.
