Do you know what happy couples know? I will put you before that. Whatever that is!

Happy couples know:

1. We take our _____________ from _____________.

2. My spouse owes me _____________.

As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Ephesians 5:22-24

Do you know what this is called?

● Mutual submission

“Christian marriage is a submission competition.” Andy Stanley

In Christ, we have different roles, different responsibilities but we never have differing value.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. Ephesians 5:28

A simple way to live this out:

“You go first.”
