“that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,” Ephesians 5:26

 

My primary calling in loving my wife is her sanctification.  The main instrument in aiding in my wife’s sanctification is God’s Word.  If I am showering my wife with love and affection, but not cleansing her by the washing of water with God’s Word then I am not being faithful to God.  If I provide her gifts of great earthly value, but don’t daily come to her wit God’s Word then I have given her nothing.  The greatest thing that I can share with my wife is what God is revealing to me in His Word.  God has given me His Word so I can have a clear picture of how Christ loves the church and in response love my wife in that same manner.
