爱教会 ,爱妻子 [Love the Church, Love Wife]

书卷:以弗所书(新约)
作者:保罗

以弗所书5章25节:“你们作丈夫的,要爱你们的妻子,正如基督爱教会,为教会舍己。”

今日默想:以弗所书5章23节告诉我们,基督是教会的头。但是祂并非对教会居高临下,作威作福;祂乃是爱教会,为教会舍己!这样以舍弃自己的爱而作头,正显明基督掌权的性质。丈夫对妻子的爱是舍己的爱。舍己的爱,绝不讲求从对方有所得,而是讲求自己有所付出。丈夫不自私的爱,就是激励妻子顺从的保证。圣经要求作妻子的要“顺服”,作丈夫的要“爱”。按表面看,好像是要求两种不同性质的美德。实际上,圣经对丈夫和妻子的要求,都是一样的。夫妻间关系是互惠的;妻子的顺服是舍己的,丈夫的爱也是舍己的。

Book: Ephesians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Ephesians 5:25 :“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,”

Today’s Meditation: Ephesians 5:23 tells us that Christ is the head of the church. However, He is not condescending. He loves church and He gave Himself for her! Such self-denying love reveals the nature of Christ’s reign. The love of husband towards his wife is a self-denying love. Such self-denying love asks for what one pays instead of what he gets in return. The unselfish love of husband motivates the obedience of wife. The Bible asks for “obedience” from wife and “love” from husband. On the surface, these two looks different. In fact, The Bible asks for the same from both husband and wife. The relationship between couple is reciprocal. The obedience of wife is self-denying, while the love of husband is also self-denying.
