Christ and the Family (Ephesians 5:18-6:4)Blake White, August 13, 2017
Part of the Laurelville Conference series, preached at a Laurelville Conference service
In light of all that Paul says in Ephesians 1-3 about God's work in bringing us to life and creating us as the new humanity in Christ, Ephesians 4-6 tells us how to live in this new reality. Ephesians 5:18-6:9 all falls under the main verb of 5:18, "be filled," and 5:22-6:4 tells us that life in the physical family is one way in which we live this Spirit-filled, Spirit-controlled life.
I. Wives: submit (5:22-24).
II. Husbands: love (5:25-33).
III. Children: obey (6:1-3).
IV. Parents: train (6:4).
V. What's the "win"?
