** Last week we took a close look together at both the MANNER and REASON for a Christian to "be subject" to their spouse.

What was the MANNER and REASON for a Christian wife to be in subjection to her "own husband"?

MANNER - "as to the Lord". cf. Ephesians 6:5-6
REASON - God has ordained a man to be the head of his wife.

What was the MANNER and REASON for a Christian husband to be "subject" to his wife?

MANNER - "just as Christ also loved His church".
REASON - to bring glory to God through his beloved wife.

Hopefully we are striving to live out these God given roles within our marriage for the glory of Jesus Christ our Lord.


** In the human and animal realms, we know that self-preservation can be used as a strong motivator. Is it possible for God to use that same motivation to preserve a marriage for His name sake? Today we will conclude this portion of Paul's letter to the Ephesians which specifically deals with husbands and wives. As we do, I would invite you to look closely at how you are fulfilling God's design for your part in marriage. Please join me now in Ephesians 5:28-33 as we enjoy together all that the Lord has for us.
