Christianity relates to all of life including how children obey and honor their parents and how fathers, as head of the household are to love and train their children.
All of our relationships are to be submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. When a husband loves his wife as Christ loves the church, submission to her husband’s leadership makes sense. Pastor Jeff helps us to understand this passage in today’s culture.
Paul’s preeminent concern is that believers conduct is governed by the love of Christ, that we live out the first great commandment and in all of our conversation and walk we live by this rule. When we are attracted by the love of Christ it is our delight to love one another, unconditionally and sacrificially. Next Paul talks about walking in light and in wisdom.
