Bride and Groom
Today’s Big Idea If we want to understand the design of marriage between a HUSBAND and a WIFE, we must embrace the design of the relationship between GOD and PEOPLE.
 
Ephesians 5:22-39
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
 
Making Marriage Work From Ephesians 5:1-2 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
 
1. Be IMITATORS of God. 2. Embrace that you are DEARLY LOVED. 3. Walk in the way of LOVE. 4. Give up our RIGHTS. 5. Get what you need from GOD so you can give to your SPOUSE.
 
What God Thinks About You You are WORTHY.
 
When you receive this truth you can GIVE the same kind of WORTH to your spouse.
