We saw last week that there are some things we should look at, as we consider the woman we want to marry. Here are additional facts that should not be overlooked. A Christian woman should benefit and bless her husband.
She is to be his helper, according to the earliest biblical precedent set for Adam and Eve. She should be a fit helper for his mission and call. If he is called to be a pastor or a missionary, for example, he should look for a Christian girlfriend who feels the same call.
If he feels a strong desire for a large family, he should find a woman who feels the same way. But most of all, according to the call put on all of us to be ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20), a man should choose a woman who will help, and not hinder him in this regard. Way before you say, “I DO”, there must be a clear understanding of your calling. Additional traits that should not be ignored are, but not limited to:
A sure commitment to love God. You should never take this for granted.
She should exhibit a commitment to prayer,
1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11 “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.”
Hebrews 6:10 “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”
Because of her love for God, there is great wisdom that comes from knowing His Word.
Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord”.
This is the kind of woman that will be truly helpful to a Christian man. Next in YOUR SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN, DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE. DO NOT MISS IT.
