Ephesians 5:22-23


"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord; For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church, and He is the Savior of the body" -




Wives -
Women who are married, regardless of age, or how long they have been married

 

Submit -
give yourself; body and mind and spirit freely - KJV Dictionary - to yield, resign, or surrender to the power, or will or authority of another - to surrender, to yield, ones person to the power of another; to give up resistance - to be subject; to conquiesce (accept something reluctantly but without protest) in the authority of another

Submit yourself is to yield/surrender your will to God's will, and your husbands

[unto your own husbands] to your own husbands, not someone else's; yield yourself to your husband, he is the spiritual leader and protector of the house

 

As unto the Lord -
Submit to God then you will be able to submit to your husband more freely, laying aside all fear, bitterness, anger, wrath, jealously 

 

For the husband is the head of the wife -

He is her spiritual leader, her protector and her provider

 

Christ is head of the church -

Christ is the perfect example for husbands to follow. The church is His bride, He protects it, leads and guides it, provides for it, and loves her

 

He (Christ) is the Savior -

There is salvation in no other name, you could say the husband, when in his godly role, is a type of Christ
