Love your wives….as Christ loved the church.
How did Christ love the church?
He washed the disciples feet.
He defended the prostitute against stone-wielding haters.
He hung on the cross.
Jesus took the punishment that was meant for me.
Jesus took the punishment that was meant for you.
He sacrificed everything so that we might live. So that we might know the fullness of love.
Submit to a husband who will love me like that? A husband who will die for me? A husband who will protect me? A husband who will put my well-fare and my needs before His own?
Let’s Talk: Do you struggle with these verses? Why or why not?
