A Letter From a Roman Jail: Ephesians
Husband and Wife in Christian Marriage
The Bible’s teaching on marriage is wise.
The Bible gives wise exhortations in light of the true nature of love, the true problem of sin, and the enduring truth of the gospel.
The marriage of one man to one woman is rooted in the created order, and provides a picture of the New Creation.
It takes both the husband and the wife to represent the beauty of the Gospel.
Wife, gripped by the Gospel, consider how to be subject to your husband and respect Him. Husband, gripped by the Gospel, consider how to love your wife to the point of giving up everything for her good, and consider how to leave your father and mother to become one with your wife.
