1 Corinthians 7:39-40 Gladys Collins, Bound to Her Husband and Her God
1 Corinthians 7:39-40(NASB)
39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.40 But in my opinion she is happier if she remains as she is; and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.
According to the laws of God & Man, when a woman exchanges wedding vows with her new husband, when she says, “I Do, “ & accepts his name & they kiss, she because his wife & bound to her husband to one of them dies. She is to be faithful, loyal, & she is to be subject or submissive to her husband. This what a wife is suppose to do according to words of God;
1 Peter 3:1(NASB)[ Godly Living ] In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives,
This is what her Lord God would have a daughter or God, & plenty woman, forward being a loving wife & mother to his children, cause i have met women, who fill empty without this kind of lifestyle. But I have met women of the world, who wanna me independent, maybe raise a child or her own, maybe have a long life bound to no one & she is perfectly happy. My grandmother, Glady Collins, spent 50 plus years married to the same man, my grandfather, Samuel Collins, she showed her love for him in every way, She gave him nine children. When my grandfather Samuel Collins died, her health started to decline & slowly she passed away. The Lord wants me & you, to be like a loving wife, to be submissive to Him. He wants us to be like a loving wife, to let us His love shine in us, like a bright lighthouse in the middle of a stormy night. My grandmother had a good relationship with my grandfather Samuel & the Lord, after he passed, she would play old hymns on the piano, inside her elderly home where she spent her final days. I want my relationship with my Lord to be like my grandmother’s relationship was with grandfather & her Lord. I hope all of you my dear friends have a close loving relationship with God,be completely submissive to His will & His Spirit will shine on you, everywhere you go. I upset some family yesterday & i hope they can be like Christ & forgive me, but they said they wouldn’t, so i can only take up with the Lord God.God bless you all, my brothers & sisters in Christ, God bless you all. The Lord loves you & so do I. Sam H.
