TAKE A VOW: Love and Respect

As Emerson Eggerichs says in his book, what wives most want from their husbands is love, and what husbands most want from their wives is respect.  Doesn’t seem all that challenging, does it?  Marriage is not easy – it’s not a 50/50 proposition, but a 100/100 proposition!  In this message, we tackle a difficult Bible passage, and do all we can to remove our ‘cultural goggles’ as we read it.  It begins with a little lesson on the biases of Bible translation.

The message is based on Ephesians 5.21-33, and can be listened to by clicking this link.

Feel free to comment!  How has your marriage lived out the truth of love and respect?  Of Ephesians 5?
