The Role of a Christian Husband The Holy Bible gives us specific guidelines about the various roles to be carried out by husbands and wives. The head of the wife is her husband and the head of the husband is God Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. Now I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you. But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven. . I Cor. 10:1-34 Committing Adultery & Husbands If a man has desires a woman other than his wife he has already committed the sin of adultery listed in the Ten Commandments, he does not have to physically touch the other woman, just thinking about it is the same as doing it. But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:28 Husbands are to love their wives as much as they love themselves. If a husband loves his wife-he loves himself In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. Eph. 5:28 The Lord expects husbands to honor their wife and be understanding. If a husband does not do this his prayers could be hindered (unheard or unanswered). Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. I Peter 3:7 Husbands should Love their wife so much that they would give up themselves for her Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, Eph. 5:25 Husbands should not be harsh or mean to their wives Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Col. 3:19 If a wife's husband dies she is allowed to marry his unmarried brother And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother. Deuteronomy 25:7
If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her. Deut. 25:5
In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. Eph. 5:28
