Sermon Outline 

Family Matters, Part IV
Instructions to the Husbands – 5:25-32

In Ephesians 5:25-33, Paul implores husbands to love their wives, then he gives three clear illustrations of this love. You must love your wives because of:

I. Christ’s Straightforward Command (to Love) (5:25a)

     1. The Command’s Audience
     2. The Command’s Ambition

II. Christ’s Sacrificial Love (5:25b)

III. Christ’s Steadfast Love (5:26-27)

     1. Illustrated by our Sanctification
     2. Shown in His Presentation
     3. Proven by our Holiness

IV. Christ’s Sincere Love (5:28-32)


 “According to the Bible, the marriage act is more than a physical act. It is an act of sharing. It is an act of communion. It is an act of total self-giving wherein the husband gives himself completely to the wife, and the wife gives herself to the husband in such a way that the two actually become one flesh." ~ Wayne Mack

"What higher motive could there be for the husband to love his wife? By loving her as Christ loved the church, he honors Christ in the most direct and graphic way. He becomes the embodiment of Christ’s love to his own wife, a living example to the rest of his family, a channel of blessing to his entire household, and a powerful testimony to a watching world." ~ John MacArthur
