For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body. THEREFORE AS THE CHURCH IS SUBJECT UNTO CHRIST, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, EVEN AS THE LORD THE CHURCH: For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak CONCERNING CHRIST AND THE CHURCH. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Ephesians 5:23-33. Let's understand FIRST, that the Bride of Christ is doing VERY well, thank you very much. She is FULL of Christians, Believers, Obeyers of the Holy Spirit, ALL WILLINGLY, JOYFULLY, AND WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION, growing in CHRISTLIKENESS. Christians die and go to Heaven every day, looking for the soon Return of Christ. How you and your wife/husband REALLY treat each other is an indicator of the quality of Walk AND Life of you, IN CHRIST. To see the visible representation of the Bride of Christ on earth, is reflected in the quality of CHRISTLIKENESS in Christian Marriages. Is there room for Improvement in your Marriage? When the Lord sends Trials, Troubles, Testing’s, AND Tribulations into your Marriage, if you Love Christ, IT WILL GROW YOU IN CHRISTLIKENESS. And There, you BOTH will, Be Blessed.
