Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father” (John 10:17,18).
During a time of feeling down because of a disagreement with my husband I found this post http://www.marketplaceleaders.org/blog/laying-down-our-life-for-the-bride/. It touched my heart because of some disagreements that my husband and I have had over a situation that should have been resolved.
As a Christian wife, I look for my husband to be my pillar, to be the strength of the family that God is to the church and when that fails to happen, I am disappointed. But this also lets me know that I must continue to look to Christ. Humans can and will disappoint us. But Christ is always stable and faithful.
Who are you looking at - Christ or man?
