Ephesians #43

Ephesians #43

Eph 5:18 - Be filled by means of the Spirit (Col 3:16) as manifested by Eph 5:19-33. Wives submit to husbands; the husband is the head of the wife - savior of the body (Eph 5:22-24, 1Co 11:3). Boaz and Ruth illustrate the principles in Eph 5. (Rut 3:1-18; Ruth 4:1-17). Ruth was a believer in the God of Israel -- she submitted to Naomi, then Boaz. Like Jesus our Kinsman Redeemer, Boaz provided Ruth salvation, redemption. Ruth lost her identity when she lost her husband. Jesus is the guardian, defender of the home, and provider of all good things.
