Here Comes the Bride

Last week we talked about how husbands should give their wives leadership, love, and loyalty. We have already noted that Paul had a lot of strong things to say to the husband, even more so than he did to the wife. But now let’s now turn our attention to the wife.

Family Ties

In this series, Dr. James Merritt will explain how he is absolutely convinced not just from a biblical perspective, but from a social and cultural perspective that the family is still a vital institution, and marriage is where the family begins. It is still God’s best plan for the beginning of the family and the continuation of the family. He will dive into the different pieces of a family and what the Bible has to say about each of them. And He will ultimately point us back to Scripture as we learn more about how God intended for the family to look, live, and love.

Bible Reference

submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
