In any case, as for youindividually, each one of you should love his wife as himself and wivesshould respect their husbands. Ephesians 5:21-33For some, these verses can be seen as controversial, but they arentmeant to be. At the very core of our human relationships must be asubmission to one another out of love and respect for Christ.Submission to others must start with our marriages. Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands 1. As if to the Lordship of Christ. (v. 22) 2. To the headship of the man in Christ.(v. 23) Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for her. A husbands love for his wife must be 1. Sacrificial (v. 25)
2. Sanctifying (vs. 26-27) 3. Satisfying (vs. 28-31)Submission to others must continue with respect for our parents,children, and work relationships As for children, obey your parents in the Lord, because it is right.The commandment Honor your father and mother is the first one with apromise attached: so that things will go well for you, and you will livefor a long time in the land. As for parents, dont provoke your childrento anger, but raise them with discipline and instruction about the Lord.As for slaves [employees], obey your human masters [employers] withfear and trembling and with sincere devotion to Christ. Dont work tomake yourself look good and try to flatter people, but act like slaves ofChrist carrying out Gods will from the heart . . . As for masters[employers], treat your slaves [employees] in the same way. Stopthreatening them, because you know that both you and your slaves havea master in heaven.
