Knock Your BLOCK Off (E)

“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.” (1 Peter 3:7, ESV)

Husbands, could one of the reasons we lack spiritual vitality in our lives and in our marriages and families be because God is not answering our prayers? And, could it be, that He has deliberately chosen t0 BLOCK Himself from our prayers due to the shabby way we treat our spouses? Read the verse again.

Yesterday I did my best to unpack the truths and implications of 1 Peter 3:7 by helping men “Knock their BLOCKS off.” Meaning, remove the BLOCK between they and God caused by ill treatment of their wives. Listen, watch, or download here.

B – Beg for Mercy

Has God blocked Himself due to the fact that you have forgotten what Christianity is all about?

L – Live for Her

Do you strive to make your wife thrive by treating her as the delicate, honorable treasure that she is? [Guys, think dishes in the China cabinet!]

O – Own Your Unique Responsibility

Do you study to know YOUR wife better than anything or anyone else?

C – Create an Environment

How are you doing at creating an atmosphere at home where everyone knows SHE is the most treasured person in the home?

K – Know Yourself

Could it be that the reason you are negative toward your wife is because you are out of God’s will? Do you enjoy your life?

 

Great example: Bill McCartney – I posted a link to a Sports Illustrated article yesterday. Read it here.
