Gospel-Centered Marriage

April 13, 2014 Speaker: John Bell Series: Flee Sexual Immorality, Glorify God With Your Body

Passage: Ephesians 5:23–5:31

Point # 1 Gospel-centered marriages begin with husbands who love their wives like Jesus loved the church in his death.

  • “Headship” (or leadership) is not commanded in this passage. Love is commanded.

Point # 2 How does the cross and the gospel connect to husbands, to empower our love for our wives?

  • We recall the death and resurrection of Jesus and connect that to some biblical commands about husbanding. (1 Peter 3:7; Colossians 3:19)

Point # 3 In a gospel-centered marriage, the wife submits herself to her husband as the church submits to Jesus.
