This week, I am over at the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) talking about what it means to be a Gospel-Centered husband. I argue that there is an unmistakable difference in posture between a Christlike husband and a husband who is merely comfortable. I then provide a few characteristics that Jesus, I think, personified to us.
Here is an excerpt on the characteristics of a gospel-centered husband being one who pursues his bride:
The Gospel-Centered Husband PURSUES.
In the same way Christ has pursued us, we should continually pursue our bride.
It is common to see this habit put to death after the marriage vows have been spoken; however, the husband who truly understands Christ’s pursuit of him will always strive to pursue his wife. He will love this about their marriage. It will be adventurous to him. Dates will be sweet. Sex will be sweeter.
There is something to be said about a man who gets out of bed daily with a war-like mindset, ready to clothe himself in his husbandry armor, and go to war on pursuing his wife. This, men, is our most important calling—to love and pursue our wives well.
