The Family, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God


The Family
“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 savior of the body.
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
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 loves his wife loves himself.
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord the church.” ~ Eph 5:21-29
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Honour your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
That it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.
And, you fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” ~ Eph. 6:1-4

Bristol music people. This whole St Philips Gate mystery-venue-that-has-to-keep-moving-its-gigs-to-other-venues thing has been troubling me. So I did what all good troubled people should do and went out and paced every yard of the St Philips and Feeder Road area to…  Đọc tiếp
