Why Jesus is Better Than a Husband | 10 Epic Reasons

Has God treated you unfairly than your Christian friends who found loving Christian husbands?  He certainly has not. Whether married or not, Christian wives and Christian singles alike must eventually come to the truth that Jesus is better than a husband.  He is the only person who has the capacity to love us like no man can.

Here are 10 epic reasons why Jesus is better than a husband:

1) You can always speak your mind to Jesus.

In a marriage, the ideal is that you would like to say what you want; when you want; and in whatever manner you wish at the time, especially when you are upset.  However, you are still on the earth and a husband is another human being whose feelings you must consider.  Therefore, you should try to speak the truth in love and be sensitive to the other person’s feelings.  

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Ephesians 4:29 ESV

With a relationship with Jesus, you can lay everything before Him.  In fact, you can release your pent-up emotions to Him.  He will not be offended.  Chances are, you will also feel much better and even get some clarification from Him.

I am extremely grateful that He knows and understands everything.  You may be complicated, but Jesus can handle all your issues.

2) Jesus can even read your mind.

Oftentimes, as a woman, you expect a man to interpret your frowns, silence, smiles and any other emotion.  When a man is unable to take the hints, you may wonder why he is not understanding you.  

On the other hand, Jesus is well acquainted with your thoughts.  Oftentimes, I have had experiences when God answered a desire that was a mere thought.  I didn’t even reach the point of voicing it in prayer! That is how awesome Jesus is.  

Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.” Matthew 12:25 ESV

3) He can handle all your emotional ups and downs.

It is commonly held that women are moody.  I don’t think that describes me (in my humble opinion), but I can be upset, angry or in a foul mood from time to time:)  Jesus has the emotional strength and wisdom to deal with all of our ups and downs.  Conversely, a husband might have challenges adjusting and dealing with those emotions.  Jesus is clearly better than a husband.

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:15-16 ESV

4) Jesus has no bad moods.

Men can become depressed if their lives, career, relationships, finances and health do not match up to their dreams and expectations.  They may react by verbally and physically lashing out; retreating behind video games and entertainment; and even absconding from their responsibilities.  

In contrast, Jesus is “cool like a cucumber.”  Nothing phases Him.  His treatment of you will always be one characterized by love and care.  You will never be a recipient of the effects of a bad mood, because He never has any!  If you receive any correction from Jesus, it’s all because of His great love toward you.  Jesus is better than a husband!

“And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” Hebrews 12:5-6 ESV

5) He can protect you like no other.

I’m a firm believer that we are mostly unaware of the many dangers from which God protects us dailyJesus has the power to protect us from dangers seen and unseen.  On the other hand, a man may try his best (and we are grateful), but he is limited because he’s only human.  

“But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ESV

6) Jesus will never be unfaithful.

Many Christian husbands may not commit physical adultery, but Jesus raised the standard for all mankind.  In Matthew 5:28, He said, “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”  

Since men are generally more visually stimulated than women, more “heart” adultery is taking place hourly and daily, just by scrolling through social media or by deceptive ads leading to porn sites.

In contrast, Jesus has no unfaithfulness in Him.  As a matter of fact, He’s forever faithful to you, even when you are unfaithful to Him.

“… if we are faithless, he remains faithful- for he cannot deny himself.” 2 Timothy 2:13 ESV

7) He will never lose his ability to provide.

A husband might lose his income and be unable to provide for his family.  On the other hand, Jesus does not operate on the world’s system.  He will always be able to provide for you, whether the world is in a recession or not.  

Even beyond providing our needs, He provides our wants as well.  A good husband may try his best, but Jesus is definitely better than him!  Since He is God, Jesus has an advantage for certain.

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 ESV

8) Jesus will always be near you.

Many singles think that marriage is a cure for loneliness.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  If you’re lonely as a single woman, you’ll probably experience that same loneliness after marriage.  

In essence, a husband cannot completely fill your need for constant companionship because he cannot be with you 24/7 365 days a year.  Only Jesus can meet that expectation because He is omnipresent.  You see why Jesus is better than a husband?!?

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:15-17 ESV

9) Jesus will not die or leave you.

Jesus died once and then He conquered death.  He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven.  Therefore, Jesus will never die again.  That’s great news!  You may marry a wonderful man, but he (and you) will someday die.  You may have all the best intentions, but this life is temporary for all of us.  

When you have Jesus, He will be with you now, when you die and forever in eternity.  Your relationship with Jesus will last much longer (eternity long) than your marriage.  Jesus is better than a husband!

“… for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5b

“So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.” Mark 16:19 ESV

10) No unrealistic comparisons with other women.

Whether a husband makes it known or unknown to his wife, he will constantly be comparing her to the awesome cooking of his mother; his former girlfriend; past sexual experiences (whether real or fantasy) and the list goes on.  It’s simply human nature.  

While Jesus knows everything about you (your heart, your past, your thoughts, your failures and triumphs), He loves you just the way you are.  With a husband, it’s a work in progress. Jesus’ love is exceptional and you can feel totally comfortable knowing that He accepts you as you are.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” John 15:9 ESV
