Family Matters, Part VI

Instructions to the Husbands – 5:25-33

In 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. Sanctifying His bride
  2. Cleansing His bride
  3. Presenting His bride

IV. Christ’s Sincere Love (5:28-32)

  1. Christ demonstrates His sincere love by:
  2. Caring for His bride (vv. 28-29)
  3. Clinging to His bride (vv. 30-32)

Conclusion: Paul’s Simple Recipe for flourishing marriages and churches (5:33)

  1. Husbands: Love your wives
  2. Wives: Respect your husbands
