3:) Jesus – I want to love You more – Day 6

  • Week Three
  • Day Six
  • Please remember to pray and ask for a heart willing to accept His Word.


Ephesians 5:21-33
21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.



There are two options today: 1) if you are married, and 2) if you are single. Marriage is an outward picture of our oneness with the Lord. It is an example of how wonderfully close the relationship is between God and those who belong to Him. The picture of the covenant between Christ and the church is found in the marriage covenant.

Be marriage-minded and think about what it could look like in a day to day life with your spouse if you really focused on living out oneness in your marriage. I have started the first one for you. (Talk together if you are married and discuss how you could implement one or two of the following.)

The two become ONE

ONE because of Christ

ONE for Christ

Submit to ONE another

Why is understanding oneness and covenant important? It is key to unity. The enemy hates our unity in Christ because it so beautifully reflects and glorifies the Triune God, three in one. Division, enmity and disillusionment are of the devil. He wants to destroy our covenanat bond. It can happen very subtly. Division begins with a thought, a critical and unforgiving spirit, or a wandering or selfish heart. Are your activities and energies during the week building oneness in your marriage? Are you for your husband or are you against him? Are you harboring any critical, divisive, or unforgiving thoughts? Allow the Lord to search your heart.

Make plans for a special night.

If you are single, spend special time with the Lord. Praise and thank Him for being your husband and your covenant King. Confess any sin in your heart, areas in which you haven’t cleaved to the Lord fully and are focused on your singleness and not enough upon being the Lord’s bride. Thank God for the gift of His son and for the gospel.

If you are married, plan a special in-home date for you and your husband. Prepare yourself inside and out. Before the evening, go before the Lord in prayer. Specifically ask God to search your heart to see if there is anything you are doing that is breaking oneness between you and your husband. After you have prepared inwardly, plan on how you will prepare yourself outwardly. Now what will you do? Will it be dinner? Will it be dessert? Just a snack? In the dining room? In the living room? In your bedroom? Have fun!!

My Own Thoughts

Never stop dating your spouse! Don’t hold things against them… it only ruins everything! Love one another. I love you all and until next time, Stay peculiar!
