“I am so thankful you are my husband…You have been a godly example as a husband, father and grandfather. I thank God for bringing us together. I love you more today than when we were first married.” Those words were written by a grateful wife shortly before her death. In a day when, according to Statistics Canada, nearly half of all marriages end in divorce, it is remarkable to hear of such a marriage. Paul the Apostle, in the Bible urged, “…husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it.” Such human love is a picture of God’s love for us. He loved us so much that He gave His only Son, Jesus to die on that old rugged cross for us. As a wife receives her husband’s love, we can receive God’s love. When we do, He comes into our lives, makes us His children and prepares us for heaven.
