Pastoral Devotion

7 12 2007

At yesterday’s staff meeting, Nathan shared such a powerful word related to the eight pictures of Christ in Ephesians 5:22-33 that I would like to pass His outline along for you to consider.

  1. Christ is Head—v. 23
  2. Christ is Savior—v. 23 (see  1 Peter 1:18-19)
  3. Christ has loved, and continues to love His bride—v. 25
  4. Christ gave Himself—v. 25 (see John 10)
  5. Christ sanctifies the church—c. 26 (see Hebrews 12:14; John 17:17)
  6. Christ washes His bride with water from the word—v. 26 (1 Thess 4:3; Ezek 36:25-26; Titus 3:5-6)
  7. Christ will present His bride to Himself (and His Father) with no hint of sin—v. 27
  8. Christ is one flesh with His body—v. 29
