Husbands Love Wives
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it”
The comparison Paul makes here between the relationship between Christ and the church and a husband and a wife unmistakably pictures what that relationship is to be.
Jesus loved the church so much that He was willing to pay the ultimate price on the cross for her. He sacrificed Himself so that the church could come into existence and so that members would have the opportunity to go to heaven.
A husband’s love is to be just as deep and just as sacrificial. A husband is to love his wife more than he loves himself and is to be willing to honor her and to pay even the ultimate sacrifice for her well-being.
