Declare these Things!

via TJC 

”Training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, - Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.“ Titus 2:12 & 2:15 ESV

I’m currently listening to an audiobook called “Adam loves Eve” and I absolutely hate this book. I hate it because it renounces ungodliness in my marriage and calls me out to be a self-controlled and upright husband. What do I mean? This morning I woke up and listened to Ch. 4 about a man needing to be glued to his wife and the mystery of the scripture telling men to leave their families (past) to be with a wife. I got so mad at the audiobook, that I wanted to give up. Instead, I kept listening and I rebuked my little temper tantrum, exhorting the boy inside me that was challenged by a hard pill to swallow. 

The chapter was specifically pointing out the fact of husbands being jealous when wives tend to the children more than us, and a light bulb flickered and then burnt out really quick as I realized this was true of me. Then the  book expounded on the fact that husbands are to cling to wives, to suffer and help; yet wives weren’t spiritually called to cling to their husbands. Yes - I got even more frustrated with the book at this point. Then God started talking to me, as we wrestled through my ridiculous reasoning.

God made me the head of my family, the bearer of stress, and the spiritual leader. I am a Godly man, who will not be disregarded as weak (by myself) or be a worldly statistic of failed marriages. Now I got a glimpse of the struggle Adam faced and how God feels about his people. 

Daily Battle Order:

Grab a copy of Adam Loves Eve and let it work through your spirit, with your wife or future wife. Be prepared that this book will toughen you up!
