Ephesians 5:25 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,

Consider the note that comes from The Reformation Study Bible.

5:25 Husbands, love. The emphasis in the passage is not the husband’s authority to govern, but his responsibility to love.

as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.Nowhere in the New Testament is Christ’s self-sacrificing love applied more directly to a specific relationship as a pattern to be emulated.

Even with the sound commentary that is provided by The Reformation Study Bible, I will plainly say, “Husband, love your wives.”

Consider the words of the following song that was sung at The Church Of The Apostles in Atlanta, Ga. The Senior Pastor of the congregation is Dr. Michael Youssef.
