In marriage, we are followers of Christ first then a spouse. In the same way, it’s important to remember that these verses apply to us (first):
🌼 Ephesians 5:1-2 “Imitate God; therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ…”
🌼v.3 “Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you…”
🌼v.6 “Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins…”
🌼 v.10 “Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them”.
🌼 v.21 “and further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ”
Don’t miss that all the verses before v.22 apply to you, your spouse and together in your marriage.
With these verses as a foundation, we see the way a healthy marriage should look like, one that pleases the Lord. A marriage that communicates the love of Christ for His Church and His Church for Him in this dark and fallen world 🙏
