I am a Christian. Can I leave my unbelieving husband? Can I leave my unbelieving wife? Should I leave my unbelieving husband? Should I leave my unbelieving wife?
What does the Bible say about leaving an unbelieving spouse? Here are some encouraging words from the Apostle Paul from the Bible:
1 Corinthians 7:12 -13, NLT Now, I will speak to the rest of you, though I do not have a direct command from the Lord. If a Christian man has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to continue living with him, he must not leave her. And if a Christian woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to continue living with her, she must not leave him.
1 Corinthians 7:14, NLT For the Christian wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the Christian husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy.
1 Corinthians 7:15, NLT (But if the husband or wife who isn’t a believer insists on leaving, let them go. In such cases the Christian husband or wife is no longer bound to the other, for God has called you to live in peace.)
Dear Friends, please PRAY for YOUR UNBELIEVING SPOUSE!
1 Corinthians 7:16, NLT Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you? And don’t you husbands realize that your wives might be saved because of you? Bible Verses about the Power of Prayer
Dear Friends, please BE A SHINING LIGHT, By God’s grace!
Matthew 5:16, NIV In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Let love rule your life!)
Dear Friends, please Don’t give up doing good! Remember, YOU are a representative of Jesus in your home. We are representatives of Jesus wherever we are!
2 Corinthians 5:20, ESV Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
Galatians 6:9, ESV And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Dear Friends, GO TO GOD for help, strength, and direction!
Psalm 28:7, NLT The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
Proverbs 3:5-6, ESV Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
My Prayer for you today:
Job 8:21, NLT He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.
I pray you have found the above helpful. In summary, If you are already married to an unbeliever, please, hang in there with God’s help, live your life to the glory of God, and PRAY. PRAY. PRAY.
***Of course, this is assuming there is no abuse involved. If you are afraid for your safety or for the safety of your loved ones, please RUN! Seek help, and get far away! You can pray for them from afar, but you need to get yourself out of this dangerous situation before you or your loved ones get seriously hurt!***
Dear Friends, if you are not yet married to an unbeliever but are considering marriage, please, don’t do it. Please, just don’t.
