"Wives submit to your husbands." This is one of the most unpopular and misunderstood commands in the Bible. Is Paul being archaic, unfair, and unrealistic? If you want to stir people up just drop the "S-word" into a conversation: Submission. It seems to apply to the weak and the powerless. What does submission mean and does it have any relevance for us today? The answer is yes! Paul is writing a specific application of a principle that applies to everyone and is the key to a healthy marriage.
I hope that you'll join us on Sunday as we continue our series "Are We There Yet?" by looking at the topic of marriage in Ephesians 5:21-32. We've all seen the statistics and heard the stories of the breakdown of marriage in our culture. Although there are many variables (finances, work, kids, busy schedules) that make marriage challenging Scripture tells us that the breakdown in our families and marriages is fundamentally a spiritual problem to which he prescribes the antidote.
I believe that, as a church, we need to rediscover the keys to a healthy marriage. We need to recapture the great vision for the thriving relationship that honors God and benefits others. Whether you are married or single, I am confident God will use our time together on Sunday to challenge you!
