Shepherd Sayings May 10, 2018
God says many things to men. One troubling and challenging word is in the book of Ephesians. Paul said, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it” (Ephesians 5:21-22, 25). The Scripture means, Jesus died for the church, and God expects men to be willing to do the same for their wives and families.When men truly represent Christ, a spiritual revolution occurs. Think about it brothers! Christian men have the God-given responsibility to represent Jesus to their families and friends.In God’s plan, women and men are created equal.
