Greetings and warm wishes in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Beloved brothers and sisters, the subject verses are part of the instructions given to the Christian families. The fact is that these instructions hold good for the whole humanity. For we are all God’s creation. As the children of Living God, we are to live a righteous life for His glory’s sake. According to the subject verses, we are to fully present ourselves to our married partners. Most importantly, this has to be done out of reverence and love for our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ,
Additionally, the Bible gives us specific instructions to each partners in the same chapter of the subject verses. Wives are to submit themselves to their own husbands as they do to the Lord. Also they are to submit in everything, like how the church submits to Christ. Likewise, the husbands too have their roles to play to have a godly and blessed married lives. Husbands are to love their wives just as Christ loved the church. Even more, husbands are to love their wives as their own bodies. As the following verses from the same chapter of the subject verse says.
25. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her In this same way,
28. husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.Ephesians 5:25,28
Therefore beloved, we all have our roles to play as the righteous children of the living God. Let us submit to our spouses for the glory of the Omnipotent God. Moreover, let our lives be lived in submission to Christ. All the praises and glory be to the God most high. In Jesus matchless name. Amen.
