How many editorials have you read that say that Southern Baptists think a husband ought to be willing to die for his wife? Not many, I’m sure. They probably have focused more on the consensus that women are to submit to their husbands. But you see, that’s only one side of the coin.
Husbands are to lay down their lives for their wives. Now, a husband may never be called to physically die for his wife, but God is calling every husband to die to his ego, pride, ambition, and anything else about himself that he places above his wife. How is he to love his wife? Passionately.
What do I mean by that? Well, I’m not talking about sexual passion, though that certainly is one of the gifts of marriage. But I am talking about a passion that says, “I am willing to die for you.”
When a man loves his wife passionately, there’s nothing too precious for that man to give up for his wife, except his relationship to Almighty God. And most women don’t mind being in submission to a man who loves her enough to die for her and shows it by the way he lives for her.
