Redeeming the Time

Ephesians 5

Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just  as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:22-27 NASB

Walk Together

     4 Statements:

It’s okay (to be single)

But I wish everyone were single, just as I am. Yet each person has a special gift from God, of one kind or another. 1 Corinthians. 7:7 NLT

Marriage is (for procreation)

God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it… Genesis 1:28 CSB

Marriage is (for pleasure)

But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. 1 Corinthians 7:2 NASB

A Christian (should marry a Christian)

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?  And what communion has light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14 NKJV

Why Marriage?

(Emotional needs)

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 NASB

(Social needs)

For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 NASB

(Physical needs)

The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs.

1 Corinthians 7:3 NLT

(Spiritual needs)

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 NASB

Different Responsibilities

Wife – (Submission)

(Not order but operation)

Husband – (Love)

(Agape—Self-Sacrificing)
