God's Creation Order for Marriage

Ephesians 5:22-33

April 11, 2021 • Pastor Paul Edwards

What the Apostle Paul is describing in Ephesians 5:22-33 is Spirit-controlled marriage and such a concept is completely foreign to the culture-at-large AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN. What does it mean for a wife to submit to her own husband and that the husband is the head of the wife?

The Mysterious Union of Christ and His Church

Ephesians 5:25-33 • May 2, 2021 • Pastor Paul Edwards

"For we are members of his body, and of his flesh, and of his bones," is the amazing claim that the Apostle Paul makes in Ephesians 5:30 when he describes the relationship between Christ and His church. But what exactly does it mean? And who is included in the "we"?

Spiritual Beauty in Marriage

Ephesians 5:25-33 • April 25, 2021 • Pastor Paul Edwards

The role of the husband as head of the wife is not to rule over her for to satisfy his own desires but rather to love her with a view toward God's objective of spiritual beauty in the marriage.

Submission in Christian Marriage

Ephesians 5:22-24 • April 18, 2021 • Pastor Paul Edwards

Submission in Christian marriage is not subjugation to the tyrannical whims or rules of the husband. It is a humble reception of the grace, mercy, and peace being served by the husband through love.
