A Word to Wives

Ephesians 5:22-24  (ID: 3275)

Men and women are equal in dignity as image-bearers and co-heirs with Christ, but different in function. Alistair Begg considers the place of submission in marriage, noting that God has given wives a clear command to submit to their husbands. Like every area of life, the marriage relationship is tainted by the consequences of sin, but Christ is exalted when husbands and wives live according to the pattern that God has provided in His Word.


Wives and Husbands

22Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
