There are so many views on what a marriage should be and who should be doing what. The Bible tells husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the church. Women should submit to their husbands. But, what does all of that mean and how would it look in a marriage?
Ephesians lays out the plans for the marriage in Eph 5:21-33.
21Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26to make her holy, cleansing26 Or having cleansed her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30for we are members of his body.
31“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”31 Gen. 2:24 32This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
This explains the foundation of a relationship should be. While dating for the purpose of looking for a spouse, you should watch and pay attention to how you’re being treated. How do they speak to you?
These will be some things that will be discussed in the latest podcast with my special guest, Coach/Pastor Ellis Crum.
