Message of the week

Colossians 3:19 “Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.”

The Bible gives clear instructions for the different roles in families and responsibilities in the relationships between husbands and wives and parents and children. These include that they must love each other, submit to one another, obey and encourage each other.

When it comes to husbands, it says they must love their wives and treat them well. It has been said that the best gift a father can give his children is to love their mother. This is the first and most important thing the Lord wants husbands to do.

The Lord further tells husbands how they must love their wives when He says we must love them as Jesus loved the church and gave Himself up for her (Ephesians 5:25). Husbands must reveal something of the love of Christ to their wives, which will lead their wives to submit to them.




Kolossense 3:19 "Manne, wees lief vir jou vroue en wees nie hard met hulle nie."

Die Bybel gee duidelike instruksies vir die verskillende rolle in gesinne en verantwoordelikhede in die verhouding tussen mans en vrouens en ouers en kinders. Dit sluit in dat hulle mekaar moet liefhê, aan mekaar moet onderwerp, mekaar moet aanmoedig en aanmoedig.

Wanneer dit by mans kom, sê dit dat hulle hul vroue moet liefhê en hulle goed moet behandel. Daar is gesê dat die beste geskenk wat 'n pa sy kinders kan gee, is om hul ma lief te hê. Dit is die eerste en belangrikste ding wat die Here wil hê mans moet doen.

Die Here vertel ook aan mans hoe hulle hulle vroue moet liefhê wanneer Hy sê ons moet hulle liefhê soos Jesus die kerk liefgehad het en Homself vir haar gegee het (Efesiërs 5:25). Mans moet iets van die liefde van Christus aan hulle vroue openbaar, wat hulle vrouens sal lei om aan hulle te onderwerp.
