Pristine Grace

Eph 5:22-33, (LITV)
22  Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord,
23  because a husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is Head of the assembly, and He is the Savior of the body.
24  But even as the assembly is subject to Christ, so also the wives to their own husbands in everything.
25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly and gave Himself up on its behalf,
26  that He might sanctify it, cleansing it by the washing of the water in the Word,
27  that He might present it to Himself as the glorious assembly, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things, but that it be holy and without blemish.
28  So, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies, (he loving his wife loves himself),
29  for then no one hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Lord the assembly.
30  For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
31  "For this, a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh." Gen. 2:24
32  The mystery is great, but I speak as to Christ and as to the assembly.
33  However, you also, everyone, let each one love his wife as himself, and the wife, that she give deference to the husband.
