Love Your Wife Like Your Own Body (Ephesians 5:28-29)

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

After some deep discussion, God breaks it down very simple for the husbands. Love and care for your wife like you do your own body. She is part of you.

God Explains Marriage, Part 3 (Ephesians 5:22-24) – The Wife to the Husband

Monday, March 10th, 2014

What does the idea of submission mean? How does it relate to the rest of our relationships in life?

How is a wife to submit to her husband, and on what basis? What if a husband is going the wrong way, or doesn’t measure up to what his wife thinks he should be?

This study answers these questions direct from God’s Word.
