Marriage by God’s Design (Submission, Headship, Love and Respect)

Scripture: Ephesians 5:21-33 

Scripture Memory:  Mark:34-35

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.”

Journey: Today is our last day of focusing on the theme of marriage and we’re returning to  Ephesians 5 to carefully consider the difficult but critical subjects of submission and Christ-like love in the context of marriage.

One Statement and Two Questions: “If we named the title of today’s message “Radically Submissive Wives, Christ-like Loving Husbands, Happy Homes” we would be very close to summarizing what the Apostle Paul says in Ephesians 5 about marriage. How does that make you “feel”? Why?      

Glad to pursue His blessing on our marriages with you,
