The Way Christ Treats The Church

31-33 And this is why a man leaves father and mother and cherishes his wife. No longer two, they become “one flesh.” This is a huge mystery, and I don’t pretend to understand it all. What is clearest to me is the way Christ treats the church. And this provides a good picture of how each husband is to treat his wife, loving himself in loving her, and how each wife is to honor her husband.

– Ephesians 5:31-33

The Message Version (MSG)


31-33 一個男人離開父母,與妻子連結。他們不再是二個人,而是「成為一體」,這是極大的奧祕,我坦承自己仍未完全測透。但我所清楚知道的是,這正是基督對待教會的方式。這提供了一幅丈夫如何對待妻子的美好畫面:愛妻子要如同愛惜自己一般,也為妻子如何敬重丈夫提供了榜樣。

– 以弗所書五章31-33節
