Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 March 24

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 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. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (Ephesians 5:20-28).

Today’s Morsel:  Two words that seem to escape relationships these days are submission and love.  The world has established a pattern on non-submission in trying to bring about equality that has ruined the love in a relationships.  You cannot have two heads in a relationship. Not even in a business can you have to bosses, nor can you have two pastors in one church.  There must be a submission for things to work.  Paul said that the wife was to submit to her husband and that her husband was to love her as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it.  This isn’t a hard principle to follow when both are walking hand in hand with the Lord.  The problem comes when both want to be the head, and neither are following Christ's perfect plan.

Sing: Are you washed, in the blood, in the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb; are your garments spots, are they white as snow, are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Thought For Today:   Only one head per body.

  1. Jesus works decently and in order, thank God. As a husband, I must set the example for submission for my wife.
