To love your wife like Christ loved the church includes leading by example. Reflect on this and allow the Holy Spirit to show you where you are not leading by example.
In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul told the church at Corinth that they should imitate him just as he imitated Christ. Does the way you live, the way you talk, and the way you love your wife and children lead them closer to Christ? Can they see Jesus in you?
The more your focus is on imitating Christ and growing spiritually, the more you will be equipped to love and lead like Jesus. No one wants to submit or follow someone who isn’t willing to set the example. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the areas where you need to be a better example on ask God to help you grow in those areas.
