*Helping your spouse to flourish*

Ephesians 5:22-24 MSG
[22-24] Wives, understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. The husband provides leadership to his wife the way Christ does to his church, not by domineering but by cherishing. So just as the church submits to Christ as he exercises such leadership, wives should likewise submit to their husbands.

以 弗 所 書 5:22-24 CUV
[22] 你 們 作 妻 子 的 , 當 順 服 自 己 的 丈 夫 , 如 同 順 服 主 。 [23] 因 為 丈 夫 是 妻 子 的 頭 , 如 同 基 督 是 教 會 的 頭 ; 他 又 是 教 會 全 體 的 救 主 。 [24] 教 會 怎 樣 順 服 基 督 , 妻 子 也 要 怎 樣 凡 事 順 服 丈 夫 。

Ephesians 5:26-29 Voice
[26] Husbands, you must love your wives so deeply, purely, and sacrificially that we can understand it only when we compare it to the love the Anointed One has for His bride, the church. We know He gave Himself up completely to make her His own, washing her clean of all her impurity with water and the powerful presence of His word. [27] He has given Himself so that He can present the church as His radiant bride, unstained, unwrinkled, and unblemished-completely free from all impurity-holy and innocent before Him. [28] So husbands should care for their wives as if their lives depended on it, the same way they care for their own bodies. As you love her, you ultimately are loving part of yourself (remember, you are one flesh). [29] No one really hates his own body; he takes care to feed and love it, just as the Anointed takes care of His church,

以 弗 所 書 5:26-29 CUV
[26] 要 用 水 藉 著 道 把 教 會 洗 淨 , 成 為 聖 潔 , [27] 可 以 獻 給 自 己 , 作 個 榮 耀 的 教 會 , 毫 無 玷 污 、 皺 紋 等 類 的 病 , 乃 是 聖 潔 沒 有 瑕 疵 的 。 [28] 丈 夫 也 當 照 樣 愛 妻 子 , 如 同 愛 自 己 的 身 子 ; 愛 妻 子 便 是 愛 自 己 了 。 [29] 從 來 沒 有 人 恨 惡 自 己 的 身 子 , 總 是 保 養 顧 惜 , 正 像 基 督 待 教 會 一 樣 ,
