Love and Respect

22 For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24 As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.
25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26 to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. 27 He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. 28 In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. 29 No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. 30 And we are members of his body.
31 As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.”[32 This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one. 33 So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Ephesians 5:22-33 NLT

  1. Good passage. Love the title. “Love and Respect” is the title of the best and most helpful couples Bible study I’ve ever led groups through. Love and respect are also two of the crucial building blocks of a healthy Christian marriage. Thanks for sharing.

    1. If we would only follow God’s plan how much better we all would be. He says not to be unequally yoked yet how many Christians are in a relationship with a non Christian? If we just would listen. Then we would have a better chance of succeeding with our marriage. Because a good man will be good to his wife and vice versa. We all would do well to obey God’s plan. Wouldn’t you agree?
      Hugs and God bless you (((Jan))) 💜

      1. I agree wholeheartedly!! God guided me to Bob and helped me stick with him even though there was another who was trying to pull me away from him. My faithful, Christian husband has been my God-send for over 60 years. With God as our pilot, we have been richly blessed! ❤️❤️👍🏽👍🏽

      2. Praise the Lord. What a beautiful testimony. May the Lord bless you with many more years together sweet (((Jan))) ❤️

        I was wondering today if we would be able to hang around each other in Heaven. Like still do things together.
