This is a Foundation episode that covers how we should turn up in our marriage and how we should treat each other.
There are many great scriptures we can use and the focus of this episode is Ephesians 5:21-33. There are some pretty big responsibilities in these scriptures for both Husbands and Wives.
Some key topics discussed:
- The importance of submitting yourselves one to another
- How we love Christ is the same as a Wife should love her Husband
- Husbands should give their all to their Wives, just like Christ gave everything for the Church
- If a Husband and Wife both have a desire to serve, with the needs & desires of their spouse (not their own) in their heart, it will be an amazing marriage.

Until next time, He Says, She Says, God Says.
21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
