  • Review Obligations of the church in response to God’s offer of Spiritual Blessings: 1. Unity 2. Righteousness - Loving Attitude - Life Beyond Reproach - Piety - An Ordered Life
  • An ordered life includes: 1. An ordered family
  • 22  Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 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.  - Eph. 5:22-23
  • 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. - Eph. 5:24
  • 25  Husbands, love your wives - Eph. 5:25a
  • Greek words for the English word-Love Eros: Physical/Sensual Phileos: Friendship Storgos: Family Agapao: Sacrificial
  • 25b  just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26  so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, - Eph. 5:25b-26
  • 27 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. - Eph. 5:27
  • Jesus’ Love Included: 1. His death to save the church. 2. His teachings to guarantee her life. 3. His care to draw her near to him
  • 28 So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,  - Eph. 5:28-29
  • 30 because we are members of His body.  - Eph. 5:30
  • Questions Before Marriage 1. Is she willing to submit to me? 2. Am I willing to lead? 3. Am I willing to sacrifice for her?
  • If men knew how to be the head of their wives as Christ is the head of the church– women would happily submit themselves to their leadership.
  • 31  FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.  - Eph. 5:31
  • 32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. - Eph. 5:32
  • 33 Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband. - Eph. 5:33
  • Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2  HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise), 3 SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH. - Eph. 6:1-3
  • 4  Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. - Eph. 6:4
  • An ordered life includes: 1. An ordered family 2. An orderly society
  • Order in Society Slaves & Masters Slaves: 5  Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ;   - Eph. 6:5
  • 6  not by way of eye service, as men- pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.  - Eph. 6:6
  • 7 With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8  knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. - Eph. 6:7-8
  • Order in Society Slaves & Masters Masters: 9 And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him. - Eph. 6:9
  • Obligations of the church in response to God’s offer of Spiritual Blessings:
 1. Unity 2. Righteousness - Loving Attitude - Life Beyond Reproach - Piety - An Ordered Life - In Family - In Society
