Laziness in the area of Bible study will create a place of separation in your marriage. Separate spiritual lives make oneness impossible in a marriage.
However, Biblical knowledge brings security and establishes your leadership in your wife’s heart. Knowledge of Scripture can bring peace and raise her level of respect for you.
[Jesus], being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death — even death on a cross! (PHILIPPIANS 2:6-8, emphasis added)
Christ came to do the will of the Father, not His own will. He came in pursuit of righteousness and on behalf of righteousness. We need to lead spiritually, like Christ, in our homes since spiritual oneness with her husband is every woman’s desire.
