Ephesians 5

December 4, 2009

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

    I like that Paul tells husbands to make sacrifices for their wives! True love sacrifices for the sake of the beloved.

  3. v.2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

    v.2 & v.25 both have the phrase "and gave himself up". Both in the context of God's love. We know we are loved, regardless of what happens in our life, because Christ gave himself up for us. Whenever we doubt God's love we simply have to think about the Cross.
