How to treat your partner according to the Bible in 2021
Hello, last time we talked about Building life in a Christian life and we received several positive responses from our loyal readers.
So today I am back with another theme.
How are you treating your partner?
Gen 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one fresh”
It means, time comes and we make a family after a religious marriage. The partner we are talking about today is your legal religious wife or husband and someone you are planning to wed from the church not the ones you fornicate with.
Gen 2:18 “And the lord said that it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him an help meet for him”
And finally Eve was made from his rib.
Leaving the story, many of us are married and have produced children but still we are solving odds in our relationships. How should a Christian treat his or her partner according to the Bible’s teaching?
Caring for one another
Caring is an essential thing in any outstanding relationship, God has given you what you have been praying for and you made vows in the church while moving down the aisles, God and the congregate being your witnesses. However, after sometimes, we forget our vows and start doing evil things.
Caring does not mean having enough materials like money or wealth, actually means doing simple tasks, little surprises and being there for your partner when he/she needs you and not depriving your partner on sexual excitements and being friendly to one another.
Colossians 3:18-19 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands as it is fit in the lord. Husbands, love your wives and be not bitter against them”
The man or wife should treat each other equally, contribute together as a family because you have become one fresh. Ladies are more highly observed leaving all responsibilities to men alone because of freedom they have been given in the world but high powers and authority comes from God.
“1st Corinthians 7:2-4 “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband”-2
He is your husband and she is your wife, you should treat her/him better so that temptations like adultery and fornication in marriage are minimized.
“Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence; and likewise also the wife unto the husband”-3
“The wife hath no power of her own body, but the husband; and likewise also the husband hath no power of his own body, but the wife”-4
Therefore the scriptures clearly says “the man’s body belongs to the woman and the woman to the man” this clearly indicates no one of you (wife and husband) should deprive on one another on intimacy, romance and it should not be conditional unlike when there is biological problems .
Let us treat one another equally, care for one another and not deprive our partners on sexual excitements for materials because you are one fresh.
Trust and faithfulness
Marriages are being broken because of lack of trust and faithfulness. Men misread this verse
Most of them think every woman was created for them. The woman that was created for you is the one you have officially married from the church. The rest you go that is adultery or fornication.
You will only treat your wife or husband better if you have trust, faithfulness and patience.
Situations change but know Satan brings more temptations and God is testing for our faith and patience. Whoever cheats in marriage is not faithful, trustworthy to his or her partner and thus there will be mistreats in such a relationship.
Be faithful and patience to your partner, be trustworthy enough and God shall bless your relationship with unending joy.
Some ladies have been observed divorcing, leaving their husbands for the smallest challenges. This is because they live in the flesh not the spirit and have no faith and patience nor trust.
Romans 7:13 “And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him”
If your man believes in God, trusts you and, or you are happy with him, don’t leave him over small matters that can be fixed. Whatever difficulties and challenges that come between you (husband and wife), it is either God is testing you or Satan is tempting you, but once you pray and remain in spirit, then you will overcome the challenges and difficulties however much they are.
Trust, faithfulness and patience align with complying with the laws that govern marriage and the laws or rules and regulations that you set together as partners to govern your marriage/relationship.
Roman 7:2 “For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law of her husband so longer as he liveth; but if the be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband”.
Let us treat our partners according to the Bible teaching and that is only when God shall reward our relationships with unending joy.
Let’s pray together loud brethren
Father in heaven, I thank you for giving me my partner
I thank you for giving me life and power to read and understand
