“Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.” -Colossians 3:18-19
-Marriage is not about what you can get out of it, but what you can give into it.
-Look at how God has loved you in spite of yourself.
-Love “incarnationally,” meaning “Flesh it out.” Live it out!
-As husbands love, there is submission.
-Wives and husbands are equal, but husbands have been given the authority. (Galatians 3:28, 1 Corinthians 11:3, Philippians 2:5-11, Ephesians 5:21)
-If you want a heavenly home on earth, practice these principles in God’s Word.

-vs. 4- Moses was eager to meet God. He got up early in anticipation.

-vs. 7- Attributes of God: merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundant in lovingkindness, true, forgiving, just
-This passage shows us we need Crist. Thankfully, we have a compassionate High Priest (Hebrews 4:12).
