Wives, submit to your husbands as 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. – Ephesians 5:22-24
How many times do we run across this verse in the home makers blogosphere? The focus is always on the women to submit. never does the blogger focus on the husband treating the wife as the Messiah treats the body. Never do we ask ourselves how does the Church Submit to Christ? Does the Church submit to Messiah or does it submit to a board of directors and an agenda for growth.
Do we really want to base our relationship with our husbands on the relationship the Church has with Christ? I think if the Church based its relationship with Christ on some of the Godly marriages I have witnessed we would have such amazing growth and revival, and not the type that creates numbers, but the kind grows us all closer to God.
