  • 1. Men’s Fellowship and Meeting July 18 at 9:00 A.M. on Koinonia Three days from now July 15, 2009 1 Peter 2 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him (excellence; virtue) who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light:
  • 2. 1 Peter 3 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. Dwell with them according to knowledge Make every effort to understand her needs and desires , seeking God's Wisdom to be able to bless her.
  • 3. A husband is responsible unto God for the way he loves, understands, respects, and treats his wife. Understand and provide her spiritual , emotional , financial , and physical needs . It's not all about you .
  • 4. Ephesians 5 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Savior [a deliverer] of the body. Head = … (in the sense of seizing ); the head (as the part most readily taken hold of ), … Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary. God holds the man responsible for the welfare of his family; especially his wife.
  • 5. Godly headship manifests itself in loving leadership . Every decision is for the welfare of his family; Nothing is done for himself alone .
  • 6. Colossians 3 19 Husbands, love ( agapao) your wives, and be not bitter against them. It's much more than a feeling. All of our behavior must reflect genuine love. Such love is not centered upon self, but upon the woman you married because you love her .
  • 7. "Be not bitter against them." Anger prolonged becomes bitterness. 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Luke 6 Disappointment clung to becomes bitterness. Resentment soon turns into bitterness.
  • 8. Ephesians 5 25 Husbands, love (agapao) your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; How much should a husband love his wife? As much as Jesus loves the church ; He gave Himself for us . There's no place for, "What about me?" "What do I get out of it?" It's all about her .
  • 9. Text : 1 Peter 3 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. Honor = Value, esteem, dignity Strong's We will never put down , ridicule , or harshly criticize that which we value. We will never lie to, cheat, or deceive one we esteem .
  • 10. Giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vesse l , Giving honor -- She doesn't have to earn it; She's your wife . She is more delicate ; take care not to break her.
  • 11. God is your Father-in-law Treat His daughter well. Text : 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
  • 12. That your prayers be not hindered A man who doesn't treat his wife as God has directed, will not get a prayer heard or answered. In so doing we show forth the excellence and virtue of God.
