Ephesians 5:25 – The Gospel is the Overflow of a Godly Marriage

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 51:1‐53:12, Ephesians 5:1‐33, Psalm 69:19‐36, Proverbs 24:7

Context: Paul is explaining how the Ephesian Christians should walk because of the position that they now have through Christ. 

One of the verses that stood out to me: Ephesians 5:25 – Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her…

Observations:

  • Husbands , love (agapao) your wives
    • As (according to, just as, equal to)
      • Christ loved the church
      • and gave himself (handed over, delivered up) up for her

When doing weddings, one of the exciting things for me to point out is “the Gospel is the overflow of a Godly marriage.” 

Apply: I want to be Jesus to Rebecca today.  Ephesians 5:25 calls me to seek ways to sacrificially love her.

How might God want you to sacrificially love your spouse, a friend or a stranger today?
