Colossians 3:19 - Marriage and Family: Role of the Husband
Christian marriage is to be characterized by the husband's loving, sacrificial headship and the wife's response of loving submission--reflecting the relationship of Christ and His Church.
In this sermon, the scriptural command of Colossians 3:19 for the husband to love his wife is unpacked. Then the commentary on this command found in Ephesians 5:22-33 is used to see that the husband's love for his wife is to reflect Christ's love for His church in that it is a purifying, purposeful, providing and protecting, and a possessive love. Then the caution from the end of Colossians 3:19 to not be bitter is explained.
