Do you ever wish you could start over? I mean really start over? Do you ever feel, as a husband, that you wish you knew then — when you first got married — what you know now? If we are honest with ourselves then surely each of us will admit that we really did not know what we signed up for; we did not know the immense responsibility and privilege of being a husband. But now we know and our hearts’ desire it to become God’s kind of husband. But where do we start? The answer is simple, yet the process is difficult and will require the full surrender of self. The answer is to become like Christ, more accurately, to become the kind of husband that Jesus Christ is to His bride, the church. To aid us on our journey of surrendering to God and learning to love is a new book by Pastor Larry McCall, Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church. It is a book that God is using to lead me to deeper levels of repentance and growth as a husband.
Biblical, Christ-Centered Counseling at its Best
Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church is what true biblical counseling looks like; it is thoroughly Bible-based, Christ-centered, and grace-promoting. As Tedd Tripp writes in the Foreword, “worship is the key to marriage.” Therefore, it is only when we get our heart right before God in who we worship that our marriage becomes a Christ-glorifying, grace-promoting relationship. This is what gives this book its bull’s-eye focus on Christ. And this is what makes it a book that deeply convicts the heart of the husband who knows Christ, but continues to battle — day in and day out — the power of indwelling sin and its self-glorifying, self-pleasing traits.
