爱教会 ,爱妻子 [Love the Church, Love Wife]





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.
