Word of the Day... July 27, 2013

22 For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24 As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.
25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her Ephesians 5:22-25 

I can’t tell you how many times I hear women saying “Does this mean that he is the boss of everything?”  I have to stop and ask them, “Do you think that Jesus is the boss of your life or is He the lover of your soul?” 

Why did you submit to Jesus when you became a Christian?  Was it because you came to understand just how much He loves you?  It is the same way with our husbands.  God calls them to love us as Christ loves the church and gave His life for it.  

If husbands are sacrificially loving their wives as they should, wives will naturally want to submit to them.  If wives are submitting, husbands will be more inclined to continue to love them and sacrifice for them.  If you have both the marriage will work great because you will be working as one in the Lord!!!

I hope that all of you have a safe and Simply Heavenly day!  God bless you!!!
