Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (Eph 5:22)
The foundation of the development of a relationship with Jesus Christ is to Love the Lord with all the heart, mind, soul, and strength.
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. (Eph 5:23)
For you are the Body of Christ and the Body of Christ is the Bride of Christ. Therefore let us be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live!
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Eph 5:24)
For obedience is what the Lord desires from each one of us. Let us walk even as He walked. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. (1 Jn 5:3)
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (Eph 5:25)
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. (Rom 5:6) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (Rom 12:1)
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. (Eph 5:26-28)
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. (1 Jn 3:18)
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: (Eph 5:29)
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Eph 4:15-16)
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. (Eph 5:30)
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Cor 6:19-20)
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. (Eph 5:31)
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. (1 Cor 6:17)
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Eph 5:32)
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. (1 Cor 12:13-14)
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. (Eph 5:33)
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. (1 Cor 11:3)
If we then subject ourselves to the hierarchal headship of God as we were taught and fulfill our roles that have been given unto us as a man and woman, and also as a husband and wife; we will then further develop our relationship with Jesus Christ, because of our obedience unto the Word of God of which He has set forth for us to follow according to whether or not you are a man or a woman and whether or not you are the husband or the wife.
Let us go on unto perfection and Let us fulfill our roles!!
