A TRUE CHRISTIAN HUSBAND
BE A CHRISTIAN HUSBAND
Ephesians 5:25; Colossians 3:19; 1Peter 3:7
There is no husband on earth that can truly, genuinely, and sincerely love his wife as Christ love the church until Christ comes to dwell n his heart. You must therefore open up your heart to Jesus and He in turn will open up in you a fountain of love and grace that neither you nor your spouse would ever have thought possible!

(Acts 20:34-25) The head sits atop the body and yet will feel no pressure from it. Once your head begins to weigh down the body or you feel the pressure, or tyrant of your head on your body, there is a problem that needs the immediate attention of the physician. Dont put pressure on your wife.
