Relationships matter to God. From Genesis, we see the very first human interaction is between a husband and wife. One can only wonder what Adam thought when presented with his perfect match, Eve. Once he realized he would no longer be in the garden alone, he may have thought, “Now what?” How could he love and honor the one God had gifted him? We find the answer to this question throughout the Bible. However, even more specifically, nestled in the letters of Paul, we find the key to how a husband can love his wife.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. (Ephesians 5:25)
This verse carries significant weight for husbands who want to love their wives. Although many may readily give their physical lives for their wives, some may struggle with how to really love their them with all their being. I believe, however, that husbands who are intentional can help create an atmosphere in their relationship where they love, honor, and serve their wives like Christ loves the church.
With this in mind, here are 7 ways a husband can truly show love to his wife.
