Subject Unto Christ

Ephesians 5:24 reads, “Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.” Something occurred to me this last Wednesday night that struck me for the first time that I can remember. The imperative to wives isn’t understood without the comparison with the church. She understands her subjection to her husband from the subjection of the church to Christ. Subjection to Christ is assumed in the church. How could a woman expect to understand the subjection if she doesn’t have the example of a church subjecting itself to Christ? Also, the subjection to Christ of the church is comparable to the subjection of the wife to the husband. Could a woman even be considered to be in subjection to her husband if she subjected like most church members? It doesn’t seem like a contemporary idea for church members to be subject to Christ. A person is saved when He subjects Himself to Christ, and then He keeps subjecting. What about you?
