6/15/17 The Christian Wife

“God created marriage to be a picture of the relationship between Jesus and His church.  Just as Jesus is the head and the redeemer of the church, the Christian husband is to be the head of his family.  Now, the church comes together as one body to make decisions, its members discussing matters, sharing their opinions, and praying together for God’s will to be revealed and done among them, as equals.  But ultimately, the church needs to defer to Jesus, because He is the head of the church.  In this same way, Christian husbands and wives are to come together as one to make decisions for their families, but the final decision belongs to the husband as the head of the family, and the wife needs to support and abide by her husband’s decisions.”
