Preacher: Pastor Foo
Scripture: Ephesians 5:21-24


I.  Mandate of Submission (Eph 5:21-22)  - Both spouses are to be in submission to each other
II.  Motive of Submission (Eph 5:23)  - Christ is the head and husband is created to be the head 
III.  Model of Submission (Eph 5:24) - As Christ submit to the Father, so wife likewise


"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves." (Philippians 2:3)


You have longed for sweet peace and for faith to increase,
And have earnestly, fervently prayed;
But you cannot have rest or be perfectly blest
Until all on the altar is laid.  —Hoffman

Submission to God means taking our hands off what belongs to Him.
