10 Things A Christian Wife Should Know!

I always respect any Christian wife practicing the unique lifestyle of godliness. But, it is so worrisome that the church and society are morally degenerating. The reason is not far fetch! The number of Christian wife is reducing daily!!

God instituted marriage by giving Adam a wife (not wives, and not same-sex marriage), who would be a helper to her husband. The significance of a Christian wife at home can never be underestimated.

Christian wives are the salt of the Christian homes. “If the salt loses its power, it becomes contaminated sand”.

Today’s message reveals the cogent points needed for the success of a Christian wife

  1. You are a Helper

A Christian wife is a supportive agent for the success of her husband. You are not the president of the home, but the vice-president. Don’t be deceived by the culture of the land where the birth-right of men has been sold to the women.

Genesis chapter 2 verse 18: “And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

2. Your Anger hinders the prayers of your husband

God does not joke with a faithful Christian wife. Thus, it is wise to settle dispute without delay, else the home will be in turmoil.

First Peter chapter 3 verses 7: “Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.”

3. Weak sexual intimacy can break your marriage

A Christian wife that is too busy in her job and spiritual matters will ‘lose’ her husband to women of easy virtual. Note: More than 95% of healthy husband like sexual intimacy. So, satisfying the sexual urges of your husband will save your marriage from spirit of adultery and separation.

First Corinthians chapter 7 verses 3: “The husband should not deprive his wife of sexual intimacy, which is her right as a married woman, nor should the wife deprive her husband.” (NLT)

4.  Respect your husband
Not only when he is rich, but also when things are not going smoothly. Your husband will respect you, if you express your feelings in a calm way. The act of yelling, cursing or slapping is unacceptable.

5. A Christian wife influences the spiritual growth

Your influence on the spiritual growth of your family is vital. Research had shown that, women pray more than men, so, keep up your family altar every day.

The spiritual growth in your family implies God’s presence, and zero tolerance for the devil.

6. Inner beauty is the best

A Christian wife should not give herself to the artificial beauty of this world. A worldly wife is so much concerned with makeup, jewelry, expensive wears, artificial hair-dressing, piercing of ears and so on. You have to keep up your natural beauty to avoid falling into the beautiful trap of the devil. (1 Peter 3:1-6)

7. Submission error leads to Conflict!

It is wise for a Christian wife to submit to her Christian husband. This will cut any form of family crisis. Many marriages end up in divorce, because the women claim an unnecessary ‘equal right’. Submitting to your husband does not make you a fool.

Ephesians chapter 5 verses 22 to 23: “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.”

8. Lazy Christian wife suffers disrespect

“Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. She is like the merchant ships; she brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household and a portion for her maidservants.” Proverbs chapter 31 verse 10 to 31

9. Bad Meals cannot make you shine

If you want to win the heart of your husband always, then learn to be a good cook. Don’t give such responsibility to your maid or to the eateries across the road.

10. An evening stroll makes Miracle

A Christian wife should create an outdoor event with her husband. It goes a long way to amend any emotional crack in the marriage.
