In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4

The word of God has an answer to all the questions that we have in life. More so in marriage, it gives us answers on what God intended the institution to be. It gives guidance on how to handle conflicts within the marriage, how to Love and how to submit.

If really want to understand about Love as God intended it, just read

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails.

As a husband if you are wondering what is the benchmark of loving your wife just read Ephesians 5:25 – 30 “ Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her26 to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body.”

As a wife if you want to know more about submitting to your husband, you just read Ephesians 5:22-24 “ Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.”

Indeed there are many examples of different scriptures that provide answers that we need in our lives. We need to cultivate a culture of studying the word of God regularly in order to build further our knowledge of God and our relationship with Him. However, this should not be done as a duty as at the end, it will fail to meet its goals – since it will be superficial.

Every aspect of your life that you submit to God own principles will grow stronger and more long-lasting over time. But any part of you withhold from Him, choosing instead to try your own hand at it, will weaken and eventually fail when the storms of life hit you. It may, in fact, be the one area that hastens the downfall of your home and marriage.

Wise couples build their houses on the rock of God’s word. They have seen what building a house on sand can do to such a ‘house’. They know how it feels when their footing gets soft and the foundation gives way. That’s why you must determine to build your life and marriage on the solid rock and then you can plan on a stronger future – no matter how had the storms get.


Commit to reading the Bible every day. Find a devotional book or other resource that will give you some guidance. If your spouse is open to it, see if they will commit to daily Bible reading with you. Begin submitting each area of your life to its guidance and start building on the rock.
