This week Pastor Ron Lewis continues his series, “Spirit-Filled Husbands and Wives,” by preaching on Ephesians 5:23a. This is often a misunderstood scripture, but as we find out, it makes perfectly good sense when we truly dig into it.
A. The Roles and Priorities of the Spirit-Filled Wife (V22-24)
1. The Command to Submit V22
2. The Reason for Submitting V23a
a. Paul’s Reason Stated…
For the husband is the head of the wife,
b. Paul’s Reason Grounded…
1) Marriage Designed and Instituted in Creation (Genesis 2)
2) Marriage Corrupted and Cursed through the Fall (Genesis 3)
3) Marriage Restored through Salvation and the Filling of the Spirit (Ephesians 5)
