Ephesians 5:25-31 (NIV)
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for 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.”
- In your experience, what role do husbands usually play in the family unit?
- Have you observed this working well?
- The husband is instructed to love his wife. How do you think the husband should love God?
- How do you feel knowing that even when you didn’t love god He loved you enough to invite you into relationship with Him and wanted you to be part of His family, the Church?
