Peter reminds us of all that Christ did for us on the cross and challenges husbands in particular to love their wives as Christ did the church and gave Himself up for her. What Christ did for us had nothing to do with our performance. He just loved us! We should have that same attitude!
As we remember the death of our Saviour, we also need to remember His resurrection and His continuing presence with us. Andrew Murray said “A dead Christ I must do everything for, a living Christ does everything for me.” Are you living your life as though CHRIST IS RISEN or are you acting as though He is still dead?
