What does Paul mean when he says:
Husbands... love your wives as Christ loved the church.... (Ephesians 5:25)
Think about some of the implications of this verse:
- Jesus loved the church before it was founded. (He died for HER)
- Jesus loves the church now and intercedes for her. (He lives for HER)
- Jesus loves the church so much that He will one day come to claim His bride. (He longs for HER)
- Jesus loves the church so much that He will never leave her nor forsake her. (He loves HER)
Husbands, those are some tall orders from our King.
Are you man enough?
