Pauls teaching on Christian marriage mirrors the teaching in Revelation 2:1-7, where Jesus says the church of Ephesus has left its first love. We at times check out emotionally from our marriage. We become selfish, self-centered and busy about everything else that we no longer have time for our spouse. Just like we no longer have time for The Lord. When we read about Christ empowered submission and love in Ephesians chapter 5, starting is verse 22, it’s something we cannot do apart from having a living, loving relationship with Jesus Christ. Today we examine our love in light of what it means and the consequences of leaving our first love.
