Men…man up! Grow some and start acting like Christ toward your wife. Don’t throw excuses around, start zipping up your pants from the front instead of the side and be the man your wife NEEDS you to be…there.
This is one of my favorite hymns of all. This is a wonderful rendition with the brass and timpani adding the appropriate regal sound. Love the congregational singing. Some day all believers will stand around the throne of the Lamb and sing together! What a day that will be.
1.All hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Let’s look ahead at Proverbs 5 it begins “My Son, …”
Just a note – chapter breaks and verses breaks are not original to the text. They were added rather recently in the course of Biblical History. So don’t ever get hung up by thinking a chapter break means anything more than just an arbitrary division.
Anyway Proverbs 5 could very easily continue on with the thought expressed in Proverbs 4. Because as we’ll see it fits right together.
1 My son, be attentive to my wisdom;
incline your ear to my understanding,
2 that you may keep discretion,
and your lips may guard knowledge.
3 For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey,
and her speech is smoother than oil,
4 but in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death;
her steps follow the path to Sheol;
6 she does not ponder the path of life;
her ways wander, and she does not know it.
Let us compare Proverbs 4:24-27 and Proverbs 5:1-6…to read more, click HERE
It is right and good in the sight of God to obey (submit to) your parents.
Bring honour to your parents in your actions and words. This is the first commandment that comes with a promise.
A man came home from work and found his 5 children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found …an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel… She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’ She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?…
”Yes,” was his incredulous reply..
She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’
Once God saves you, then what?
What happens to a Christian when he/she becomes a Christian? This has nothing to do with saying a praying, reading a prayer or filling out an "I'm Saved Card'. This has to do with the experience of a person, a sinner who gets knocked off his high horse, flattened by the holiness of God and made to see his sin in light of the beauty of Christ.
