"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water'." (John 7:38)

"Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual." (1Cor. 2:12-13)

A Perfect Husband

A married woman in Christ is never without a Godly husband.

If he fails, if he falls short, if there be any lack in his love, provisions or security for the family, you are never without, for you belong to Jesus, the head and husband of His church in whom you can call on at anytime to provide you with the grace, strength, and peace you need as he takes you through your necessary seasons that you may grow into the Godly wife He desires you to be. When a woman comes under the authority of a man, regardless of his standing with Jesus, she is under the covering of Christ because of her obedience to her own place of submission.

So, single women, be absolutely certain of the source of the spiritual authority you commit yourself to in a husband. Though you belong to Christ, your life can become very torn if you submit to a man whose authority is not Jesus. For those whose husbands do not honor the Lord, your wisdom and counsel is found in the Word, by asking God, and fellowship within your church.

Seek wisdom from many in the body of Christ. (Proverbs 11:14) Your pastor may be one over you in the Lord and worthy of double honor, but he is not your spiritual authority. He is your brother in Christ and like all of us is susceptible to honoring religion and legalism rather than mercy and grace. Our Redeemer lives.


"If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace." (1 Corinthians 7:13-15)
