. look over if you would to ephesians chapter number 5, ephesians chapter number 5. a little bit to the left in your Bible there. Tonight I want to preach on the subject of marriage. It’s something needs to be talked about quite often just because our society has such skewed views on marriage that we need to push that reset button often and look at what the Bible says, get a reality check on what a good marriage is going to look like according to the Bible. Now, look at Ephesians chapter 5 beginning in verse number 22, the Bible reads, Wives,.
Submit yourselves under your own husbands as unto the lord, for the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of church and he is the savior of the body. Therefore, as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing,.
But that it should be holy and without blemish. so ought men are to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh, but nourisheth it and cherisheth it even as the Lord the church. For we are members of his body, and of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife and they too shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ.
And the church. nevertheless, never let everyone of you in particular love his wife even as himself and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Now let me just point out that that last verse is basically a summing up of everything that he just said. In these 11 versus where he talks about marriage and he talks about the husband’s responsibilities and he talks about the wife’s responsibilities, then he just summarized it all in that last verse and says, Let everyone of you in particular love his.
Wife even as himself and the wife see that she reverence her husband. that’s the main thing that he’s trying to get across in this passage. As you read this passage on marriage, one of the clearest passages in the New Testament on marriage, you’ll notice a lot of talk about Christ and the church and you say, What’s that all about? I just wanted to know how to have a good marriage. Here’s the thing: it starts with Christ. Speaker 2: Amen. Speaker 1: It starts with being a Christian,.
And it starts with both husband and wife being a christian because of the fact that if you’re unequally yoked together with unbelievers this isn’t going to work out. See, the Bible teaches that we need to take the whole counsel of God. There are so many people who want to take an ala carte approach to what the Bible teaches. It reminds me of a coworker that I had one time and he had just gotten saved, he had just received Christ as savior just a few days before. We were talking about all different things and we were reading the.
Bible together and he said to me, how do you get your wife to submit to you? how does that work? I want in on that. Then he tells me, Well, she’s not really my wife, it’s my girlfriend. Wait a minute, step one: get married. You’re living with someone that you’re not married to and then you want to apply the principles of the Bible to make that a good marriage and to have a proper . Obviously, that’s ridiculous. You’ve got to follow all the advice. You can’t just pick and choose which part.
Of it you’re going to take. in order to have a good marriage, you need to have a good christian life. It starts with Christ, it starts with the church, it starts with all these things. How are you going to love your wife as Christ loved the church if you don’t know Christ? How are you going to submit yourself unto your husband as the church is subject unto Christ when you don’t even go to church or you don’t even know Christ? Obviously, this is a spiritual matter, and so it’s starts with Jesus and it starts with.
