Submissive Reflections



Ephesians 5:22-23 (CEV)
A wife should put her husband first, as she does the Lord. A husband is the head of his wife, as Christ is the head and the Savior of the church, which is his own body. 

Suppose you were someone who knew very little about Christianity and Scripture. Imagine that you stumbled on this passage and thought, “The Church submits to Christ the way Shirlee submits to Wade. Christ loves us the way Wade loves Shirlee” (fill in your own names or the names of other married couples).

    Awe, I love your example. I have been thinking about my marriage relationship a lot lately and your words brought my heart to a place of change. One of those moments when you say “okay God, I got it and I am going to make a change in my behavior, with you help of course.” Thank you for sharing.

      May we all change, Donna, and become better reflections of Christ. May “Okay God” rest frequently on our lips.

      Bless you!
