Ephesians 5:30-33

For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."

This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

In the Bible, the relationship between Jesus and the church is often compared to the relationship between a man and a woman who are engaged to be married; Jesus is the groom and the church is the bride who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bridegroom.

Anyone who has experienced this wonderful event in their lives can surely remember the joyous anticipation that preceded the wedding day, nothing quite compares.

That is the condition of all believers: we are the fiancee awaiting our bridegroom, who is Jesus the Savior.

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

When my grandsons came home from Sunday school during one of our weekend visits to their home, I asked if either of them could tell me where to find the Ten Commandments.

Blank stares and silence were finally broken when one of them said, "Have you looked it up in the Yellow Pages?"

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. How many wives and concubines did Solomon have?

A. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart.

1 Kings 11:3


Though this must not have been pleasing to God, the law did not specifically say that a man could not have more than one wife.

Jesus made it clear that God intended one man to marry one woman and be faithful to her.
