Shine Your Light- Marriage

Ephesians 5:22-33

If you want to do one thing to cause strife, strike at marriage.


The duty of the wife is to submit.  Christ does not hold us to the ground.  A wife should honor and obey and love her husband.  Responding love.

First love  - attraction love

Wife is called to have responding love.
Husband is to have agape love - lay his life down for his wife.

Children come into a family not a marriage.   Husband and wife come into marriage.

Romans 3:23

God wants to take us back to the glory that Adam and Eve had before sin came into the world.

Your righteousness is found in Christ.
This passage shows us Christ's love for his bride.  It's not us who makes us right but who we are in - ie in Christ.

Marriage gets attacked the  most in the world today. 

We need to be a Light in the World and let it shine.

Show our relationship with the One Who saves us.

The enemy will attack our families.  Wives to respect our husbands.  Husbands are to love their wives.  Offspring often happens and a family is formed.  Children are often most affected if marriage breaks down.
