There have been some long wars in human history.  For example, the U.S. has been in Afghanistan for 14 years (by comparison, WWII lasted only 4 years).

 

In Europe, the French and English actually fought for 116 years over the rights to the French crown.  That war was called the “Hundred Years’ War.”

 

But the longest-standing battle in human history hasn’t lasted 10 years or 100 years or even 1000 years.  It has raged since Adam and Eve.  I’m talking about the “battle between the sexes.”   

 

Today God’s word offers us hope for history’s longest battle.  You can end this battle and have a home of peace and harmony!

 

Let’s open our Bible to Ephesians 5:21-25 for God’s battle plan as we fight for our families!

“Hope for History’s Longest Battle”

Ephesians 5:21-25

 

  1. Establish the context

Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ (Eph. 5:21).

  1. The principle of context
  2. The passage in context
  1. Embrace the counsel

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord (Eph. 5:22).

  1. The wife is to submit willingly
  2. The wife is to submit worshipfully
  1. Experience the companionship

For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior (Eph. 5:23).

 

  1. The husband is to submit by leading
  2. The husband is to submit by loving
