Wednesday, October 10/23, 2002: Ephesians 5:25-33, Luke 8:22-25
- passage: Ephesians 5:25-5:33
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. For no man
ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as
the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and
of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother,
and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even
as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
passage: Luke 8:22-8:25
Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his
disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of
the lake. And they launched forth. But as they sailed he fell asleep:
and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled
with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid
wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he
commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
