Would "I Do" That Again

Dissed & Disillusioned (A Man & Respect in Marriage) Dale Beaver 02/18/2018 Watch Listen Notes

Ephesians 5:1-3
1Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. 3Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.

 

Ephesians 5:15-21
15So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. 17Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. 18Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, 19singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. 20And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 21And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

 

Ephesians 5:22-33
22For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. 25For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. 27He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. 27In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. 29No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. 30And we are members of his body. 31As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” 32This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one. 33So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

 

Mark 10:2-9
2Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: “Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife?” 3Jesus answered them with a question: “What did Moses say in the law about divorce?” 4“Well, he permitted it,” they replied. “He said a man can give his wife a written notice of divorce and send her away.” 5But Jesus responded, “He wrote this commandment only as a concession to your hard hearts. 6But ‘God made them male and female’ from the beginning of creation. 7‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, 8and the two are united into one.’ Since they are no longer two but one, 9let no one split apart what God has joined together.”

 

 

A wife must esteem her husband with an exclusive respect.

 

Ephesians 5:21
And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

 

Submission: “….a decision about the relative worth of another person, a manner of dying and rising with Christ, and a way to respect and love other people.” 
-K. Snodgrass, A Commentary on Ephesians

 

Ephesians 5:22-24
22For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.

 

Ephesians 5:33
So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

 

A wife will understand the power of her words.

 

Ephesians 5:22
For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord.

 

A wife will set her husband up to be her hero.

 

Ephesians 5:23
For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church.

 

A wife will employ the paradox of feminine power.

 

Ephesians 5:24
As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.

 

1 Peter 3:1-2
1In the same way, you wives must accept the authority of your husbands. Then, even if some refuse to obey the Good News, your godly lives will speak to them without any words. They will be won over 2by observing your pure and reverent lives.

Ephesians 5:15-21
15So be careful how you live.

Ephesians 5:22-30
22For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. 25For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. 27He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. 28In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. 29No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. 30 And we are members of his body.

 

Ephesians 5:31-33|
31As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” 32This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one. 33So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

 

He must remember to protect her with an inconceivable love.

 

An inconceivable love, demonstrated by communication and care, will build communion with our wives.

 

Ephesians 5: 25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her.

 

“It is not love unless it overwhelms and at some point petrifies us. For there is a sting of love, a bite, and it is fatal. A man who has been bitten by love will die for what he loves.”
-The Mystery of Marriage, Mason

 

He will employ the practice of consistent communication.

 

Ephesians 5:25-27
25For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word27He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault.

 

Colossians 1:15  Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.|
Colossians 1:19  For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ.

 

Romans 1:16-17a
16For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. 17This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight…

 

He will pursue his wife with reassuring care.

 

Ephesians 5:28-30
28In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. 29No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. 30And we are members of his body.

 

 “Love creates the only safe ground upon which all the bristling weaponry of self-assertion may begin to be surrendered. What use is there in asserting the self if the self is already loved, fully and unreservedly, and not because of but in spite of anything it might do?”
-The Mystery of Marriage, Mason

 

1 Peter 3:7
In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.
