Verse of the Day (June 19, 2020)

Verse of the Day (June 19, 2020) #BMSeminary – Jesus Christ is the focal point of history and the reference point for all our obedience. Husbands find in Christ a model for sacrificial, loving, strong, tender headship. Wives find in the church’s submission to Christ a model for intelligent, gracious, trusting, respectful submission. Though these commands may be designed to reverse the sin of Eden (where the woman usurped her husband’s authority and the man relinquished his sacrificial leadership), the Bible never roots these gender roles in the fall, let alone in a certain cultural context. Instead, these roles are meant to be an expression of the unchanging gospel dynamics of Christ’s relationship to the church and the church’s relationship to him. [Gospel Transformation Study Bible]
