Bible Verse of the Day

 

Ephesians 5:25-26

“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,”

We covered this subject in part in our recent Bible Q&A.

In the prior verses we are told the husband is the head of the wife, essentially the head of the family just as Christ is the head of the church. Christ is our example and the husband is supposed to take that example and apply it to his own family.

Verse 22 does not mean the husband has some slave master authority over his wife. You can document that in verses 28-31. We are to love our wives as our own body. We are to treat each other, husband and wife equally though the husband certainly has the leadership role within the family unit.

That should be common sense, it is natural and that is how our Father always operates.
