The Christian Wife and her Unsaved Husband

How do you feel coming to church alone with the children? And your husband is at home sleeping? Do you feel burdened because you have been praying for him to get born again and it seems he is getting further away from the Lord? How do u you feel when he teases you about your faith and you cannot do anything about it? What about the church programmes for couples that you cannot attend because he refuses to go with you? Or even the remarks from Church that "if you ladies with unsaved husbands would just be more sweet and loving, your husbands would get born again in no time."

Do not feel alone. God is still with you. You may have entered the marriage thinking that you could change your spouse or get him born again. Or you may have gotten born again after your marriage and you can't understand why he cannot see the light. Don't give up, there is hope. Press on. 

If your husband is not saved, it does not mean you are any less of a Christian. The lord is not slow about his promise, as some count slowness, but is patient towards you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9).

Do you know that your spouse, even though he is an unbeliever, is sanctified - set apart for holy use- through you? 1 Cor. 7:1 says, For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through her believing husband; for otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy.

So be strong and courageous. It is just a matter of time. Be the best wife that you can possibly be and see him through God's eyes.
You may ask "What if he asks you not to worship your God or go to church? What would you do? 

Remember Daniel in the den of lions (Daniel 6). Be wise and know whom you serve. For He shall always be with you.

Shalom
