MP 013 : Submission in Marriage

“Wives be subject to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of his wife, as Christ is the head of the Church, his body and himself his Savior” Eph 5:22

People hear this reading in the pews and start squirming! Why is that? This is an integral passage to understand not only the relationship between husbands and wives, but in understanding how we can image God to each other. We have found that often this passage is misinterpreted and misunderstood. After years of thinking about this and living it out in our marriage we offer a different perspective in this podcast. The heart of what we talk about is how God wants to love each husband and each wife through their spouse. Marital love is a powerful thing because God wants to use it to show us His powerful awesome love. Listen in as we offer our perspective on this compelling passage of God’s word.

  1. Hi Mike and Alicia,

    I am a little behind on my comments but I wanted to thank you for continuing the podcast so faithfully…the Lord is truly using it as a tool in my life to help me grow into a holier wife and mother!

    I especially appreciated this podcast on Ephesians 5. It brought to light some areas that I need to work on and take to prayer in my love and respect of my husband. I appreciate, too, how you both speak the truth in charity, but that you don’t mince words. Thank you for calling wrong wrong, and for calling us (your grateful listening audience!) to a higher ideal. I am sure it’s not easy to put your marriage (in all its trails, errors, and successes) out there for the whole world to read about, but in taking that step of humility, I truly believe the Holy Spirit is working through you to impart much-needed wisdom to young families. There are so many voices out there telling us all how to do x, y, and z, and it’s so wonderful to have real people with real lives who truly desire to be saints, giving this advice. You are a great blessing in my life!

    God bless you and your family,
