|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Five, Lesson Four
THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 4 Page
** If wives are the submissive pillar, does Paul tell husbands to exercise authority, give commands, take charge!?!
** Even as he fills his God ordained role of authority, or head of the body (his marriage), how does the husband manifest his heart attitude of subjection toward his wife - what command does Paul give him to personally and specifically apply this truth?
** Like with the role of the wife, let's look at the MANNER and the REASON for this most important command which Paul has issued to every Christian husband. What word do you suppose Paul used here for love?
** Do you suppose the Christian husband is to love his wife so sacrificially because she is so submissive and such a godly example to him?
** Alright then, what is the MANNER and to what extent is the husband to love his wife?
** How did Jesus Christ choose to show His love for the church?
