God's Creation Order for Marriage, Part 2

Ephesians 5:22-33

Marriage is not an anthropological or social construct. It is a divine ordinance instituted by God in creation. Only as we see marriage in this way can we understand the proper relationship of submission and headship within marriage.

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.
