Godly Husbands: Reflecting the Image of Christ for our Wives
This past weekend I did my first workshop for a church. I was asked to do a workshop for newly married husbands. When I arrived I found that there were only 3 (out of 11) who had been married for less than 3 years. Some had been married for nearly 60 years! It was incredibly humbling to hear the responses from the men who have been married for so long. They were so eager to learn and continue to work on their marriages.
We focused primarily on Ephesians 5 and what exactly it means to love our wives as Christ loves the church. We discussed how we are wired differently to show love and accept respect. I feel the discussion went very well. Preaching there Sunday morning was also a pleasure. The topic of faithfulness and commitment is always something I enjoy preaching about. “God is more faithful than we are.” It sounds like a no-brainer but the implications of this for our relationships seems to be far reaching and at times quite difficult. I look forward to opportunities in the future to do similar workshops.

That’s exciting stuff! I imagine you’ve got a good story or two to tell from that experience. ;-D I’ll bet it was a good sermon that you preached, too. Sounds like you were fired up — the best stuff always comes out when you’re fired up.
I miss my preaching partner.
