Marriage Part 3 – Husbands Who Love Their Wives (Ephesians 5:25-33)

(For accuracy of this transcript, kindly refer to video and audio file)

Good morning again, ICMK church family. As we turn out to God’s word, I invite you to turn in your Bibles to Ephesians chapter five. Ephesians chapter five we are in versus 22 down through 33. If you know your British history, of course, you recognize the gentleman in this picture. It’s Winston Churchill, the well-known strong leader, the prime minister for Great Britain during World War Two. Now you also might recognize the photograph of the woman. It’s Lady Astor who was the very first female member of the British Parliament. History tells us that these two politicians were often in conflict with each other, including in this very well-known story. One day Lady Astor in her frustration with the prime minister, said, “Winston, if you were my husband, I’d poison your tea”, Churchill replied, “If you were my wife, I’d drink it.” Conflict between men and women, especially between husbands and wives, makes up a good percentage of our jokes and comedy routines. Much of this is harmless silly humor reflecting the differences between the genders. But if you find yourself up stuck in a difficult marriage. You probably don’t laugh too much at some of these humor. And if we use our theological lens for the conflict, behind much of this laughter would reflect to us the selfishness and a sin that’s in the heart of both men and women. The Bible teaches us the bible shows us what it means to be a man, what it means to be a woman. We get much instruction in the Bible, particularly for the husband and the wife relationship. And Ephesians five is one of the main passages that teaches us about this.
