Ephesians 5:25 ” Husbands, love your wives, just like Christ loved the Church and gave Himself up for her.”

In a marriage, men are to look to Jesus as the example.  For Jesus spoke of the Church as His bride and He the bridegroom.  Jesus demonstrated His love for His bride by willingly dying in her place.  This type of love is devoted, selfless, and sacrificing.  It’s a love that cherishes, values, and treats as precious another person.  In modern language, it’s a love that would take a bullet for her.
