Doing Family Differently – Husbands, Be Like Christ

Paul addresses the way that marriage reflects Christ’s relationship with the Church as the two become one, and says that this is a “mystery.”  Part of the importance of this mystery is that our marriages, and the way that husbands love their wives are a witness to the world as to how Christ loves his own bride, the Church.    Men are called to be like Christ and imitate him in the way he led and served his bride.  That is why for believers, and especially for Christian men, it is so important that we reflect Christ as we relate to our wives and to our children.
