“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”

In marriage, there must be a lasting commitment, but there must also be loving communication. Many marriages get into difficulty because the husband and the wife don’t learn how to communicate. Again, let’s go back to the analogy of Christ and the Church. Does Jesus Christ communicate with the Church? Yes, He does. He’s given us His Word. He speaks to us. He has sent His Spirit into our hearts. He whispers to our being that we belong to Him. We have the most intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, who said, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing.” He has given His Spirit to share His heart and life with us. Most husbands and wives who fail in their marriages have not learned to communicate.
Make a list of ways Jesus communicates with you. Consider how you might follow some of these same principles in communicating with others.
