Husbands Are responsible For Their Wives

22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the Savior.

-Ephesians 5:22-23, BSB

Husbands, wherever you go, your wife will follow. If you get deceived, your wife gets deceived. If you lose your faith in Christ, your wife will lose her faith in Christ.

Imagine yourself driving a car with your family. If you follow your GPS, you and your family will get to the destination together. If you get lost, your whole family gets lost with you. If the worst happens, like driving off a cliff, you would not only kill yourself, but you will kill your whole family as well.

As husbands, we must lead our wives in the truth, God’s Word. Remember, whatever we do and believe, we will take our family along with us.

24 At the command of the king, the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the den of lions—they and their children and wives. And before they had reached the bottom of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.

-Daniel 6:24, BSB

The men that falsely accused Daniel, the man of God, not only did they get the death penalty, but their wives and children as well. This passage is a picture of a spiritual reality that the decisions we make have eternal consequences and will have an impact not only on us, but on our wives and children.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her 26 to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to Himself as a glorious church, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.

-Ephesians 5:25-27, BSB

Husbands, be careful in what you accept as truth and always contrast it with the Word of God because you can cause the destruction of your wife’s faith.

The Word of God is the only thing that can make your wife holy and pure in God’s eyes by walking according to it. You can only base your life in the Scriptures if you believe every word of it. If not, then you will mislead yourself and your family.
