    Time to Man Up

    Ephesians 5:18-27

    Foundation of Relationships

    Spirit-Filled

    Saying Thanks

    Singing and Making Melody in our hearts

    Submission – Willing putting other’s needs above my own wants

    Key to Lasting Relationships -- Forgiveness

     

    WHY IS THIS SO HARD?

    1. The Fall – the Curse makes us want to dominate or rule our wives just like sin makes wives want to reject the authority of their husbands.
    2. Last Days

    What are the characteristics of this Love?

    1. Christian Men Should Love Sacrificially(vs. 25)

    Shows itself through focus (I Peter 3:6-7)

    1. Consideration
    2. Chivalry
    3. Communion

    The Spirit filled husband loves his wife not for what she can do for Him, but what he can do for her.

    Surrenders to the Cross Daily

    1. Love Seeks not its own – I Corinthians 13
    2. Love Selflessly Gives to Meet Other’s Needs
      Love is an action word

    2. Christian Men Should Love Purely (vs. 27)

     

    Ephesians 5:26-27 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

    How?

    1. Expose her to the Word of God
    2. Don’t Lead Her into Sin
