“B?” That’s his nickname for her ‘babe’.
“Yea,” She replied.
“It’s time for devotion,” he said.
“Ok, I’m coming.” She hurry to finish watering the garden. He hurries to finish packing her lunch and carefully tucks in the orange he peeled for her, in my lunch bag. 🙂
Matthew 18:19 – Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 – Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
The couple that prays together, keeps God in the midst. This is an important practice, especially for Christians. It helps to not only keep them united, but obedient to God.
That morning they read, Colossians 3. This chapter is chock filled with wisdom and instruction, especially for the family. Yes, it’s the same one that talks about a wife submitting to her husband and a husband loving his wife.
They had discussed the importance of him being fully submitted to God, if she, ‘Ms. Independent’, was going to fully submit to him as the priest of the household. He not only heard her, but he listened and she was in awe with his diligence in seeking after the things of God and learning about his ways.
It brought tears to her eyes when she observed him one afternoon, watching YouTube videos of Charles Spurgeon and Paul Washer.
Now, every morning, he calls for devotion and she obediently submits. Twice for the day, he initiates prayer.
A man fully submitted to Christ is so attractive.
