“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain“ - Philippians 1:21
It is a beautiful chapter about Paul’s love of furthering God’s kingdom. So much so that he compares going to be with Jesus Christ with being in the flesh. He sees the blessing in living to further God’s kingdom.
Just wanted to share. God Bless!
“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” - Ephesians 5:23 KJV
Sadly, in today’s society people who attempt to discredit the bible by saying it is sexist or misogynist, believe that this verse means that the husband is to be a dictator over the wife and family. But this is far from the truth. It simply means the husband is in a place of leadership. Both the husband and wife are equal in quality, worth, and in many other ways. Each may have strengths over the other. Headship given to the man is a functional position. It is God’s chain of authority. Like every institution, a family has to have leadership.
The feminist view that has consumed today’s society is enraged at religions as they command the woman to submit to their husband. But be proud and joyed the bible commands: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it” - Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love you wives.
