Discussion & Application

Discuss submission and headship as outlined in the sermon.

The picture of our relationship, as the Church, with Jesus is compared to a human body. How does this picture draw out the purpose and need for the relationship commands of submission and headship within marriage?

There is application here for all, whether husbands, wives, or members of Christ’s bride and body, the Church. Using the principles outlined above, think through a practical example and prayerfully work it out in your life this week.
