Ephesians 5.25-33: A Theology of Christ Portrayed in the Husband
Husbands, love your wives in a way that reflects a proper and biblical theology of Christ's love for His Bride, the Church.
Theology (a proper and biblical understanding of God and His relationship to us) is of primary importance because this theology must inform our marriages so that our marriages reflect the same theology. You can read all the self-help books you want, and they may help a bit... But you will not see a true transformation in your marriage (or any other relationship you have with other people) without theology (sound doctrine) being the foundation.
We need to draw close to God and learn Christ so that we can follow Him. As husbands do that, we will become more and more like Christ as He conforms us to His image.
