Has Jesus Ever Made You Do Anything?

February 25, 2022 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”

(Ephesians 5:25)

PONDER THIS:

Did you know Jesus never makes me do anything? Husbands, you are going to be in severe difficulty if you think that when the Bible says you are the head, you read that as, “I am the boss.” “I am the dictator.” No. Jesus is not the dictator of the Church; He is the head of the Church. If the Church, as His bride, refuses to follow, then she is going to reap repercussions, but He never forces us to do anything. Any husband who takes the attitude of a dictator is going to see that his home is in severe trouble. He is seeking to use the Bible as a club saying, “I am the head. Submit.” This is not the way of Jesus and cannot be our way either.

  • Who do you know who you would say is a great leader?
  • What makes that person a leader you want to follow?

PRACTICE THIS:

Consider the positions of influence and leadership you have been given. How will you move toward Christ-honoring leadership?
