How To Save My Husband

I am a Christian married to an unbeliever for 5 years. He allowes me and the kid to attend Church and Christian meetings but he does not come. He accepts my beliefs and is faithful, and a good husband. I know I cannot change his views, beliefs, but what could I do so that he would be saved?

Moderator - Prayer and fasting.

Do nothing. God has a place and rewards reserved for all
good men.

receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a
prophet's reward, and he that receiveth a righteous man in
the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's
reward.

these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a
disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his
reward.

I am sorry but how can you say that "MEN" wrote the bible. The bible WAS written by God through man... You cannot have the bible and not Jesus just like you cannot have Jesus and not the bible. The 2 go together. As a true Christian you either believe all the bible or none of it. You just don't pick out the parts you like or the easy laws to obey. Thats not how it works!

Sunshine: I don't know what point you are trying to make but let me tell you this. No one has to listen to me. I am not God. Only His vessel. If I can say something to help someone here then My Christian duty is done. My purpose here is to witness for Christ and to help someone along the way. I feel I am doing this. Why don't you try to do the same. You are focused on the wrong things therefore you are hindered from being a blessing to someone. Get out of my way, devil! You are a stumblingblock to me.
---Robyn on 6/10/07




First let me say: Don't fault me for writing more than one blog on some of these questions. It is not my fault. It is the system used at this site. Ok. Direct your frustration at the moderators or whomever put this system in place.
I always say: I am sorry to have to post more than once.Please learn to forgive. I cannot help if I have more to say on a topic than you do.. You don't have to compete with me. Just say what God puts on your heart. Regardless oh how little.That's it.
---Robyn on 6/10/07


Thank you Catherine for your nice words of encouragement. God bless you . If one person has enjoyed something I have said or have learned anything, this has made this site worthwhile and my blogging has not been in vain.
---Robyn on 6/10/07


Robyn>>> I enjoyed your posts. I pray that God will bless you richly.
---catherine on 6/9/07


Don't listen to that comment, The word of God is for those that are willing to blessed by it's contents, If people do no follow the word of God that's not faith that is the blind trying to lead the blind ''both ends up in a pit''. The word declares EVERY KNEE will BOw and every tongue will confess that Christ Is Lord! Have faith in the written word no ONE can disprove it, It just is not possible!
---Carla5754 on 6/9/07


NOTHING. Ofcourse you pray for the lost. Only Jesus Christ SAVES.++
---catherine on 6/9/07




In other words, Kristian, Linda, Robyn, Kathr and on and on - listen to you, and you only.

The moderator gave you the best possible Way.
Prayer and fasting. That's something God can move through.
---Sunshine on 6/9/07


Robyn, Linda, Kathr - you need help.

It's not normal to delve into every religious belief and adopt it, even temporarily. You risk going mad. It appears you are bored to pieces with your life, but leading anyone who will listen to you in every direction is mad.
---Sunset on 6/9/07


Chipper/Robyn quit writing so many blogs, do you think someone is going to read all of those? Give the rest of us a chance.

It was not too long ago, you told the rest of us that. You are hogging the blogs.
---Warren on 6/9/07


To save your husband, consider the following: Step one-stop being an idiot. Step 2-stop listening to idiots. Step 3-remember faith is a personal thing. The bible is not to be taken word by word but for its emotion and meaning. It was written by men, even if those men said "God wrote through me." I could write a gospel tomorrow and say God wrote through me - would you consider it a new book of the bible? No, I don't think so. Open your eyes and experience all the love God has to offer you.
---Kristian on 6/9/07


Private: You are using very strong language to describe everyone at this site. How can you talk about people like this that you don't even know? There is much good advice here at this blog. Everyone does not think the same. That's why variety is the spice of Life.Most Christians here are speaking from a Christian point of view. We are not to try and change anyone but we are to share the gospel with them. Are didn't you know this?
---Robyn on 6/2/07


Do not give up praying & fasting. You are called to do that. & remember the fruits of the spirit. Humble, gentle, kind. This will break the evil ones spirit. God has his hand on your husband. Go to your special place every day,pray,believe for your husband,tell your children to pray, pray together. And remember that when you pray the enemy will come on like a roaring lion so be prepared for battle with your armor of God.It is a spiritual warfare not of flesh and blood. You will withstand the enemy.

Stop badgering him. Just pray that he will eventually accept Christ before it is too late. Stop focusing on other married folk in your church and how you wish he was there with you. Get use to not attending marriage conferences and banquets at your church and other places. Get use to explaining your seemingly single position to others that do not know you are married. Get use to praying alone at home and having anyone to discuss spiritual things with, at home...More.
---Robyn on 6/1/07


More: Get use to him getting angry when you want to read your bible and pray and not entertain him, at times. When God has given you an answer to a prayer and he poopoos it. He just don't believe or understand. Its sad honey. I know when you marry an unsave man/woman. You suffer. Its better to be alone than to be married to an unbeliever. Of course there are no guarantees with a believer, either. But your chances may be a bit better. The list goes on.
---Robyn on 6/1/07


Sorry to post more than once.
More: How do I know these things. Of course I have been there and done all of that and much, much more. It gets worse. Much worse. Name calling,sneers and so on. Ladies and gentlemen: Take heed. You better listen to what God says in His Holy Word. Do not be unequally yoked...you will have Hell to pay in the end!Take it from a sister who knows.
---Robyn on 6/1/07


Actually...you cant chagne anyone like seriouslly no matter how you act or anything i've tried that once...tried to get people hungry for God by shwoing them the same things that got me hungry for God...yea it didnt work only God can change poeple...thats why we pray

Sarah: Christianity is not a religion. Very far from it. We(christians) do not practice religion. Religion is dead rituals, traditions and beliefs that have nothing to do with salvation. Much as you see in the Catholic churches. Religion is going through the motions and nothing taking effect on the heart or bringing about any real change in our lives. I want no part of religion.
---Robyn on 5/31/07


The only way someone will change if you are a great example to them, The hardest person to change will be someone that knows you personally, Husband/Children. If you are a good example then there is a chance he will see Christ in you, and get saved It does happen!

If you were a Christian before you married this man you made a bad decision. You are unequally yoked and are now feeling the effects of it.You were disobedient. God said to not marry an unbeliever!
Now.. the most you can do is to continue to live for Christ in front of him. Let him see you praying, going to church and witnessing to others. In due time he may become curious and want some of what you have. My blessings to you.
---Robyn on 5/30/07


Sarah, I read my Koran and Mohammed said in one of the Suras that a true believer believes the words of Adam, David and Mary mother of Jesus. Adam and David both prophesied of Jesus and Mary said at the wedding feast "whatever he says, do it." Jesus said that he is the way the truth and the life and that we must "come to God by him."

Hi,

I just stumbled upon this site and your question and would like to advice you to accept Islam. You think you are saved because you are a christian believer but I request you to please read Quran and you'll know. Just read it. There's no harm in reading it. There's no religion that can save you but Islam.
---Sarah on 5/30/07


Every single person on this website is so ignorant. You need to understand that not everyone shares your view. Do you want to be good and pure? Then let him do what he wants. If you keep pushing him he might leave you. Freedom of choice woman. Just because he doesn't belive doesn't mean hes going down under. If gods good he wont not send people to heven just because you don't belive in him. Thats like a human going Im going to kill you because you don't like me. Its ignorant. Leave your poor husband alone

Acts 16:31 . . . Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

1 Cor 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

You remain obedient to God. Pray for your husband. God will honor your faith and save your husband.

Imitate Christ.
The nature of Jesus is to see our potential.
Clothe him in your heart in white raiment, make him a priest, YES, give him all the respect he NEVER deserves.
Believe God's promise stubbornly; ask him to show you how to change.
If you want to change the world you HAVE to start with self.
Take up the nature of the redeemer, and renounce the seat of the accuser.
He is Saved, make it so in your mind and thank God for it, you shall have this. Don't tremble if it looks hopeless.
---Pharisee on 6/22/06


1 Peter 3:1 gives a biblical ground for winninng your husband.11 Cor. 4:4 says satan has blinded the minds of unbelievers. In Jesus' name take authority over the spirit of blindness and command the enemy to loose your husband's mind to believe. Pray that God will send the right one to share the gospel with him. After you do this begin, by faith, to thank the Lord for his salvation. It won't take long, a matter of weeks. God bless.

Diana study this Scripture. 1st. JOHN 5 14-15"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him." Your answer is to be found in these two verses. For example do you believe it is the will of God to save your husband? Remember Scripture says, it's not his will that any should perish!!

Romans 10:9-10
This same principle of "confessing with your mouth & believing in your heart" applies to your situation. Your mouth opens the door for God. So by you confessing the word concerning your situation it gives God place to work. It builds up your faith.(Romans 10:17) It overcomes the enemy.(Revelation 12:11). So confess & expect. Faith is the substance or the position you're in before you get what you're expecting & is the proof of what you don't see in the natural.(Hebrews 11:1)
---Rickey on 6/21/06


Then one Sunday I was talking to my mom & she got saved. Then the very next day I was on the phone with my brother & he got saved.
Here's some scriptures to confess: [Joshua 24:15; Romans 10:9-10; 2Peter 3:9; Mark 8:36-37]
Also these scriptures talked about confessing: [Proverbs 18:20-21; Proverbs 6:2; Job 22:28; Mark 11:23; Romans 10:9-10; 2Corinthians 4:13]

Once you get your hands into kingdom business, the King can work on your husband. The moderator is also right. I spent time in prayer & fasting. It wasn't necessarily for them, but it drew me closer to God & got me out of the way of getting them saved. Everyday I got up before class & spent time praying in the spirit. Then I would go out expecting to witness to some folks. Almost everyday, I got someone saved. I was sowing seed for my families salvation.
---Rickey on 6/21/06


In Acts 10 Cornelius' house got save by him praying & giving alms. I applied it to my life not knowing it & my family got saved. I continually confessed that my family would be saved.[2Corinthians 4:13; Job 22:28]
I praised God for it. I sowed seeds as well by getting others saved.[Genesis 8:22] As long as we're here on earth we have the oppurtunity to sow seeds & reap harvest. So sow the seed of PRAISE & THANKSGIVING; Confessing that he is saved[Romans 4:17]; & praying for others.

I agree with Mod....prayer and fasting. Only the Holy Spirit can change people. I do know one person that prayed over a cloth and put it in their spouse's bed under the mattress..but that is just what the Lord told them specifically.

Diana, My husband's father was a non-believer, and not only that he used to mock her when she listened to Christian music. My mother-in-law was steadfast and kept to her faith, she continued to pray for him and today my father-in-law is the most wonderful kind Christian man you will ever meet. Keep your faith and continue to pray for him and do not give up. God will transform his heart, because of your faith.

Try to encourage your husband to get involved with volunteer groups that help others. If he will reach out he may be able to learn to love God through good works and good people that he meets. I find that in my volunteer activities I often am able to witness for God.

I know I cannot change his views...WRONG

1Pe 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
1Pe 3:2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

Are you to good to do what God says?
No, then why do you dispair?
You have a promise from scripture!
stay clean

Continue doing what you are doing . Christ will be shown in you and he will have to chose. When the time is right he will move . You can't force him ,for just as Jesus worked in you when you accepted Him as you saviour , He also is working in your husband. Will be in prayer.

You and your husband are yoked together as one. Your family is covered by your sanctification.

The word "conversation" here from the Greek anastrophe {an-as-trof-ay'} and it means manner of life, conduct, behaviour, deportment.
