Exodus (Program #54) – Keeping the Law of God by Loving Him and His Word and Becoming One with Him (1)

We’re all familiar with the vows that are an important part of every wedding. Taken out of the context of the wedding, however, these vows can sound very much like restrictions, demands, or even laws. But in the context of the wedding, they become much less burdensome, and in fact are a testimony of absolute love and life long commitment. Have you ever viewed the laws and commandments given by God in this light?

It is revolutionary from the standpoint that it is not what many people understand when you say the giving of the law. Depending whether you’re Jewish or Christian, they could have different thoughts. But it centers around a pretty legal, judicial kind of understanding of God and of His demand upon man.

Ephesians (Program #47) – Living in the Relationship Between Wife and Husband

If you’ve been to any weddings lately, you very likely may have heard this passage quoted from Ephesians Chapter 5, “Wives, be subject to your own husbands as to the Lord; For a husband is head of the wife as also Christ is Head of the church,… Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.”

Yes, this is the exaltation that nearly every Christian couple begins their married life with. Yet as good as these verses are, they neglect one important thing.  How can we do it? How can wives submit? How can husbands love to such a degree? If we don’t offer couples these verses in the context of Chapter 5, including verse 18, we may not be serving them faithfully, in fact we may be setting them up for failure.
