we're looking at the obligations of the

church in response to God's offer of

spiritual blessings to all who come to

Jesus that's a summary if you wish in

one sentence of what has taken place in

the first four chapters of Ephesians God

has given blessings to the church

Paul has explained that and the church

responds to those blessings in a variety

of ways

by providing or by enforcing or pursuing

I think it's a better word the unity of

the Spirit and a bond of peace that's

one response by living in a righteous

way that's another response and this

idea of righteousness the response of

righteousness to God's offer of

blessings we've broken that down or Paul

rather has broken that down into a

variety of elements so we're looking at

the various features of the righteous

lifestyle that Paul describes from

chapter 4:17 all the way over to chapter

619 those that material there is all

about one thing so far he's described

three features of that righteous life

that we offer to God in response for the

blessings number one a loving attitude

number two a life lived beyond reproach

number three the idea of piety that's

what we talked about last week and we

broke the idea of piety down as prudence

spirit-filled living submissiveness

among brothers and sisters so today

we're going to look at the fourth

element of a righteous lifestyle

described by Paul and that is an ordered

life an ordered life now the three

previous features had to do with a

person's individual character and

attitude towards God the last feature

describes the Christians relationship

with family and society

so the first three features of a

righteous life have to do with the you

know the vertical relationship between

man and God the last one has to do with

horizontal feature between man and other

people a person and his family a person

and the society he lives in so when it

comes to these God has established and

desires in a word order regardless of

who we are order unfortunately sometimes

we see the relationship we have in

family or the relationship we have in

society we see the goal as perfection

but that's not the goal that God sets

God sets the goal of order so he begins

by talking about orderly families in

Chapter five and he begins with the

family because it is the basic unit in

society if there is disorder here well

then there's disorder in society as well

so we pick up his his writings in

chapter 5 in verse 22 he says wives be

subject to your own husband's as to the

Lord for the husband is the head of the

wife as Christ also is the head of the

church he himself being the savior of

the body but as the church is subject to

Christ so also the wives ought to be to

their husbands in everything I have to

understand Paul doesn't cover every

single detail of a woman's role within

marriage instead he establishes the one

attitude that will guide all the other

attitudes

he says wives should submit to their

husbands I think I mentioned this in a

another lesson or a sermon recently this

idea of submission a military term means

to place oneself under or to yield to

obey a Paul is saying that wives are to

do this voluntarily because it's not a

question of superiority it's a question

of faith that a wife submit to her

husband isn't because the husband is

superior in any way it's just a question

of obedience because we believe Paul

says that in the same way that you

submit to Christ

it also to your husband and the implied

idea is you can't do one without doing

the other you can't say I'm in

submission to Christ but I'm in

rebellion or you know I'm independent of

my husband he doesn't tell me what to do

I'm the boss bla bla he says those two

things don't work together Paul also

answers the question why why should this

be so and he answers it because God has

given the leadership role in the family

to the husband just as he has made

Christ the head of the church there can

only be one head just as there can only

be one body and so God has created

marriage in such a way that it is a

miniature copy a microcosmic copy if you

wish of the relationship between Christ

and the church it's almost a parable

that he's putting forth here you know

parables we're gonna talk about that in

the lesson and the sermon today things

that are laid alongside of each other in

the physical world there's marriage he

says and marriage is a parable a living

parable of what's going on in the spirit

world the relationship between Christ

and His Church that a wife willingly

submits to her husband is a spiritual

idea that is not grasped by the carnal

mind or the world in general and I'm

speaking to a friendly crowd here but if

I went to a campus if I went to

University of Oklahoma and I was a

speaker there I don't think they would

buy into what I'm talking about right

here because it's not a it's it's not a

worldly idea the point that Paul makes

is that when this takes place when the

wife is voluntarily in submission to her

husband it creates harmony between what

is seen and but and and with what is not

seen in the spiritual world now you know

he mentions the ideal he mentions what

it is that we're aiming for but we know

that this is not always possible

perhaps the husband is dead perhaps the

husband is an unbeliever or abusive

perhaps the husband refuses leadership

perhaps the wife is evil perhaps she

refused you know there's all kinds of

reasons why this might not happen just

as other things that he's mentioned like

a loving attitude or piety

submissiveness is a goal that one

strives for through practice and prayer

but it should be a goal for all

Christian wives it doesn't happen

automatically on the wedding day all of

a sudden you you you know you give the

vows and you walk down the aisle and all

of a sudden oh you know I'm in

submission it doesn't work like that

a woman learns this spiritual quality by

living it now some say that this was a

social thing in the first century not

valid for today you know the idea that

it was a cultural idea it's the same

argument that people used to justify

homosexuality well that was a thing in

those days you know but today we're so

much more enlightened you know but you

need to remember what the Bible you know

how the Bible puts this idea of

submissiveness he says the church has

this exact same relationship with Christ

and it has this relationship with him

forever it's not based in culture and so

in the same way so long as there is a

marriage relationship and marriage will

exist until we're in heaven then this is

the way that God intends for it to

remain you see marriage will also always

be a reflection of the church always

just as the church does not change the

relationship between Christ and His

Church doesn't change the inference is

then the relationship between the wife

and the husband it doesn't change either

until that basic relationship has done

away with in heaven and then of course

he says there's no confusion the wife

should be prepared to yield completely

to her husband this is what many times

young women

should consider before marrying if

you're a minister you've done a lot of

weddings and I have done a lot of

weddings but I rarely hear the young

women that I am counseling or talking

with about their wedding I rarely hear

them say is this the kind of man I would

be willing to submit to we should have a

questionnaire you know that's is this

you know your future husband your

fiancee is this well are you willing to

submit to this man not just when you

know not just you know where are we

gonna live and who's gonna work and what

kind of wedding dress am I gonna have

those things have some importance of

course but am I willing to put my life

into his hands and I would say to young

women if you're not willing to do that

then don't get married don't do it this

is a major cause of marital conflict and

divorce the confusion of roles within

marriage you know the idea is well I'll

submit only when and where I feel like

it and today of course in our society

the media and just the the general group

think of art of our society promotes the

idea of independence

you should be independence

you shouldn't even lose this idea when

you go into marriage there is no

independence in marriage we're not

codependent that's that's that has a

negative you know that has negative

undertones we're not codependent but we

are dependent on each other isn't that

why we get married some people are

afraid of abuse of being abused and with

reason abuse comes from sinful men who

do not understand what their actual role

in a Christian marriage is that's why

you know I encourage young women marry

someone who is a Christian you

you you have a starting point now in

verses 25 to 22 33 he talks the

husband's and what's interesting about

this passage is that Paul spends more

time talking to husbands than he does to

wives so let's pick up the reading in

verse 25 a shall we

he says husbands love your wives again

Paul mentions only one thing about them

but it describes the attitude towards

their wives that will set the tone for

the entire relationship

three words four words husband's love

your wives you could have said a whole

bunch of other things

just that one admonition now in the

Bible the word love the English word

love or the Greek words that are

translated into love are many you know

in English we say I love my wife I love

apple pie I love hunting I love my dog

you know I mean we use the same word for

everything in the Greek they were a

little more particular about how they

used the word love the word eros for

example was the word the Greeks used to

describe physical love or sensual love

or you know the kind of love oh I love

that movie or I love the fourth fifth

symphony or I love this and that that's

the word eros

sensuous type love it's not evil it's

just based in physicality another word

they use is filius which was the word

for a friendship another word that comes

from this word is filling philanthropy

you know the giving to causes and so on

and so forth another word they use for

love with Star Joseph which was the kind

of love we have in a family you know I

love my grandma well I love my grandma

and I really have love for my grandma

but it's not the same kind of love that

I have for my girlfriend

you see what I'm saying it's not the

same thing well all these things these

kind of love eros philyaw store just

these three exist in most marriages and

they describe how the marriage evolves

but the word that Paul uses here when he

says husband's love your wives is not

eros not filius not stor Jos he uses the

word Agra pal which is a word that

describes a love that is neither

physical or friendship or family

it's a sacrificial love a love that is

sacrificial in nature and the next

verses he gives Jesus as the example of

this sacrificial love in other words he

uses Jesus to describe the quality of

this love so let's keep reading now in

verse 25 he says husbands love your

wives just as Christ also loved the

church and gave himself up for her that

he might sanctify her having cleansed

her by the washing of water with the

word that he might present to himself

the church and all her glory having no

spot or wrinkle or any such thing but

that she should be holy and blameless so

he's saying Jesus's love in other words

the love that you husbands have for your

wife should be the type that Jesus had

for the church and Jesus's love for his

bride the church included first of all

sacrifice his death in order to save the

church the love that he had for the

church always included the element of

wanting what is best for the church in

other words the teachings that Jesus

gives to the church guarantees her life

and service his care to completely

purify her and give her an honorable

position next to him so every husband

has a degree of sensuality and

friendliness and sense of belonging in a

family but for his attitude to be raised

to the spiritual level there needs to

exist a readiness to love his wife in a

sacrificial way this is what Christ

demands of the husband in a marriage

pretty high target isn't it he only says

one thing to the wife but he he really

lays it on to the husband yeah

the leadership has been given to you but

along with leadership comes what

responsibility high responsibility well

in verse 28 9 and 30 he explains why so

let's read on verse 28 he says so

husbands are also to love their own

wives as their own bodies he who loves

his own wife loves himself for no one

ever hated his own flesh but nourishes

and cherishes it just as Christ also

does the church because we are members

of his body why why do this why should

the husband react in this way because in

the marriage to become one and when a

man loves his wife he is loving himself

again Christ is the example as the head

he loves he cares for the body in all

patients in all tenderness in all

necessary sacrifice that's why the

church happily submits to Jesus so this

is what young men should look for and

consider before they marry I go back to

my you know marriage counseling example

young men asked should ask themselves

the question is the girl that I want to

medic marry ready to submit to me in

marriage that should be a kind of a

conversation that the couple has

together what does this mean

what would this mean in our relationship

is he prepared to provide leadership now

what a wonderful day when our young

women in relationships with young men

ask the question to their future husband

are you ready to take leadership of my

life our home and our family I mean

really are you really ready to take the

leadership on and the key question is he

ready to sacrifice himself for her

in other words provide for her and

provide for the family

and place her needs above his own needs

oh my there's a $64 question is he able

to treat her as a special gift from God

and give her honor and respect there

there are the key questions those are

the heart quit never mind you know are

you gonna live in your house my house

we're gonna sell your car my car

we're gonna keep two dogs or give one

away and keep your dog or my dog you

know I mean these are the hard questions

that the man needs to answer is he ready

to answer those questions or does he

only want her because she will satisfy

his needs and primarily his sexual needs

and he only wants her because she's

going to take care of his house in other

words spoil him maybe replace his mother

all beware you see if men knew how to be

the head of their wives as Christ as the

head of the church women would happily

submit themselves to their leadership

the problem is the big problem in our

society we have such a self-centered

generation and and and parents you and I

parents you know we're partly

responsible for that that young men are

not willing can't even conceive of the

idea that their role in marriage is a

sacrificial one and young women many

times just don't get the idea that

they're giving up independence to put

themselves in submission to a man who

will lead their home morally and

spiritually notice here Paul doesn't

talk about work there's no mention about

women working or not working that has

that's neither here nor there it's all

about attitude

all about conditions of the heart

so Paul summarizes God's plan for

orderliness in marriage in verse 31 to

33

he says for this cause a man shall leave

his father and mother and shall cleave

to his wife and the two shall become one

flesh this mystery is great but I'm

speaking with reference to Christ in the

church nevertheless let each individual

among you also love his own wife even as

himself and let the wife see to it that

she respects her husband so the original

plan he mentions the original plan for

marriage cut ties with parents spouses

priority number one more trouble in

marriage happens because the the couple

one or the other refuses to cut you no

ties with the parents and I don't mean

stop talking to them but they they still

think you know she still thinks that

daddy is the one that has the best

advice and before I asked my husband I'm

gonna ask my dad or I'm gonna confirm

everything my husband says with my dad

you see that's that's not a good thing

one man one woman

Paul says one unit together for life no

conditions there's no condition than

that once married for life whether he

you know stays healthy she stays

beautiful whatever then he says this

model for marriage is heavenly in nature

because it reflects the union that

Christ has with his church that answers

the question why why this model it goes

against the model in modern society why

should we maintain it because it is

based on the eternal model that exists

in heaven and then he says within that

relationship the basic attitudes are the

wife submits to her husband in all

things the husband loves his wife with a

sacrificial love as he loves himself

high ideals I

I don't doubt it pretty high ideal but

at least if we know what we're shooting

for if we know where we're going we have

a chance to get there all right so we go

to the chapter 6 now he's spoken to

wives he's spoken to husbands and now

he's going to address the third part of

the family unit and that is the children

order in a family requires that mothers

and fathers maintain certain attitudes

and roles as well as the kids again Paul

doesn't give all the details of the

children's role in obligation just the

basic one found in the Old Testament

from which the other two ideas come from

so let's read chapter six one two three

he says children obey your parents in

the Lord for this is right honor your

father and mother which is the first

commandment with a promise that it may

be well with you and that you may live

long on the earth so this is simply a

variation of the commandment in Exodus

20:12

children are to obey their parents why

because of the Lord

and according to the Lord the Lord

demands it that's why and the obedience

is limited to things that the Lord would

demand the Lord doesn't demand that you

obey your children to go out and steal

you know just the idea so the basis for

this as I say is the original command in

Exodus in Exodus the promise is that

those who do would have a long life in

the promised land

Paul revises the promise for all people

living everywhere so to include the

Gentiles verse 4 brings up a very

interesting point says and fathers again

doesn't mention mother specifically

fathers however he says do not provoke

your children to anger but bring them up

in the discipline and instruction of the

Lord so he adds an exhortation to

fathers here in bringing up the children

the command for children is to obey but

that command is tempered with an appeal

to father's not to use their authority

in such a way to provoke their children

to become angry well how would that

happen well being unfair or unreasonably

high

or mean you know it's I think we all

understand that children have feelings

and to provoke them to helpless anger is

wrong and when I'm saying helpless anger

I've seen parents provoke their children

by making crazy demands on them and then

children are angry punish them for their

anger that's what I call helpless anger

and you know what helpless anger turns

into it turns into rage and if children

are enraged but have to swallow that

down for fear of punishment what do you

think happens then when they start

growing up who do you think they take it

out on husband wife instead Paul says

that fathers should raise their children

according to the discipline and the

teachings of Christ now in those days

the father had power of life and death

over the children who had absolutely no

rights today we've kind of gone the

other way you know chillerz say hey

don't don't talk too loud you know I'm

gonna call DHS on you when in those days

parents had all the rights so Paul urges

fathers to actually direct the

upbringing of their children in

accordance to the practice and teaching

of Jesus and not according to the

practice of the times or personal whims

and I want you to note that he he gives

this command to the fathers you notice

what's happened in a lot of

relationships

I hear men saying well she takes care of

the kids and I take care of the job I'm

in charge of bringing home the money

she's in charge of the kids don't tell

me about the kids you do what you want

that's not what Paul says here Paul says

the fathers have the final

responsibility for children if they're

the leaders of their family they have

the final responsibility may not have

the time if they're working obviously if

the mom is at home and you know mothers

tend to spend more time with the

children but they have a responsibility

an important one so the same holds true

too

we're the cardinal sin of father's is

not harshness or cruelty but rather

neglect poor example poor Direction lack

of direction so Paul concludes his

instructions for an orderly family by

referencing the duty of children to obey

their parents and fathers to lead in the

raising of children which is opposite of

what actually happens in our society and

we are fast becoming a matriarchal

society mom so many single more children

are born to single mothers than to

couples in our society read an article

the other day that said that one of the

big crisis in education there are no men

there are no men teaching and hardly any

man teaching it at the primary school

level when I was a school teacher many

many year on thirty years ago at least

half the staff I taught elementary in

elementary school form teacher for

fourth grade fifth grade sixth grade

half half the teachers were men today

Wow

ninety percent of the teachers

elementary level or women I mean it's

not that they're bad teachers but I'm

just saying the the balance of what

children see the types the images of a

man what a man is they don't they don't

get daddy's never home or daddy is not

at home because mom's a single mom then

then they go to school and it's a woman

in daycare that takes care of them a

woman and in kindergarten it takes care

of them and it's it's a women teacher

from you know first grade to sixth grade

and so we move on you know a

well-ordered family Paul then moves to

well-ordered Society so the fourth

requirement of righteousness is ordered

living and Paul breaks these down into

two main components ordered living is an

ordered family and an ordered Society

and so a righteous man or woman will

strive to pattern his or family life

according to the order that Christ

provides in his word that same person

will also strive to pattern his

addition in society according to the

will of Christ as well so in these few

verses Paul will explain the

responsibilities of the two main

positions within society of that era

slaves and masters and his point is that

regardless of the position in society

master or slave a righteous person

conducts himself in the order that

Christ has given and he starts with the

slaves read in verse five he says slaves

be obedient to those who are your

masters according to the flesh with fear

and trembling in the sincerity of your

hardest to Christ not by way of I

service as men pleasers but as slaves of

Christ doing the will of God from the

heart with with good will render service

as to the Lord and not to men knowing

that whatever good thing each one does

this he will receive back from the Lord

whether slave or free notice most of the

instructions for the slave why because

they have the harder role so Paul

doesn't give all the details concerning

the responsibility if you're in the

position of slave you know there were

various classes of slaves in those days

each with a degree of responsibility and

position a bond slave was at the bottom

a steward was at the top the key

ingredient that Paul urges them is

sincere obedience sincere service what

is this require well he says obey with

the knowledge that their masters are

masters only of their bodies none of

their souls obey with respect and the

knowledge that they do have authority

over you it might not be fair but it's

real it's what is obey with the same

enthusiasm that you would Christ and for

his sake not as Hippocrates saying yes

sir

but despising them in your heart and he

says obey with good will being positive

and sincere knowing that in doing your

service in this way you really are doing

the will of God and God will reward you

in the end of course these attitudes so

easily transferred over into modern

times right employee you know whose

who's who's ever worked for a boss that

was hard to work for who's ever worked

for a boss who was incompetent right

you're doing their job they get the

money and they get to this and they get

the promotion but you're actually doing

the guts of their job who hasn't had

that experience I have and I see people

going oh yeah sure do these instructions

change because we put it in a modern

setting and we change the titles from

master to supervisor and slave to you

know first-line mechanic or whatever you

do Paul doesn't promote or defend

slavery notice that he simply gives

those in that position the way to live

so as to please the Lord and in doing so

will demonstrate their righteousness

even as slaves in the end the rise of

Christianity did away with the slave

system not rebellion and then he goes to

masters don't have a lot of time left he

goes to masters verse nine one verse and

he says and masters do the same things

to them and give up threatening knowing

that both their master and yours is in

heaven and there is no partiality with

him so Paul finishes with the word two

masters I mean there were Christians in

those days who owned slaves

you know Philemon owned slaves this was

the structure of that society a

household in those days included family

and slaves all part of one unit to the

Masters Paul gives one reminder and that

is that every one slave and master has

the same master in heaven who will judge

a judge who will not be favorable to one

or the other and will be judged

according to the same standard and what

standard will that be righteousness you

were a slave all your life were you

righteous you were a master all your

life were you righteous to God's Word if

this is so then they should stop using

coercion or threats and what

to motivate their slaves again an

attitude of fairness and respect carried

over to today's employer the unset idea

is that they should use what the master

uses to motivate us what does the Lord

use to motivate us well he uses kindness

and teaching and encouragement and

generosity not just Authority I mean if

anyone in the whole world could just

tell order us to do what we need to do

God can

yes final authority but he doesn't yes

he tells us what we need to do but he's

constantly encouraging us and motivating

us and blessing us so that completes the

information concerning the final element

required to live in righteousness before

God an ordered life order in one's

family order in society again you have

to remember Paul doesn't give all the

information about a subject in a single

book we could talk a long time about the

idea of righteousness but he gives

several you know several points several

ways that righteousness is seen if you

wish that is pertinent to the people who

lived in Ephesus considering the issues

that they were going through at the time

there was disorder he wants to restore

order alright next week we're going to

conclude with the final obligation of

the church in response to God's

blessings the last section of Ephesians

and that is faithfulness faithfulness

we'll go through that great passage the

armor of God

[Music]

the spoon theory is a disability

metaphor used to explain the reduced

amount of energy available for

activities of daily living and

productive tasks that may result from

disability or chronic illness spoons are

a tangible unit of measurement used to

track how much energy a person has

throughout a given day each activity

requires a given number of spoons which

will only be replaced as the person

recharges through rest a person who runs

out of spoons has no choice but to rest

until their spoons are replenished one

of the tenets of the spoon theory is

that many people with disabilities or

chronic illness must carefully plan

their daily activities to conserve their

spoons while most people without any

disabilities or chronic illnesses do not

need to worry about running out because

healthy people do not feel the impact of

spending spoons for mundane tasks such

as bathing and getting dressed they may

not realize the amount of energy

expended by chronically ill or disabled

people to get through the day spoons are

widely discussed with an autoimmune

disability and other chronic illness

communities but the concept of spoons is

otherwise considered a neologism the

term spoon II is sometimes used to refer

to a person with a chronic illness that

can be explained with the spoon theory

the term spoons was coined by Christine

Messer on Deano in 2003 in her essay the

spoon theory which is posted on her

website butan to look sick come in it

she recalls a conversation in which her

close friend and roommate asked her a

vague question about what having lupus

feels like the two were in a diner and

misery and Ino took spoons from nearby

tables to use as a visual aid she handed

her friend 12 spoons and asked her to

describe the events of a typical day

taking a spoon away for each activity

in this way she demonstrated that her

spoons or units of energy must be

rationed to avoid running out before the

end of the day miss ER and Eno also

asserted that it is possible to exceed

ones daily limit but that doing so means

borrowing from the future and may result

in not having enough spoons the next day

for some people spoons may be replaced

after rest or a night of sleep however

people with chronic diseases such as

autoimmune diseases and various

disabilities may have concurrent sleep

disorders which result in a particularly

low supply of energy some disabled

people may not be fatigued by the

disabilities themselves but by the

constant effort required to pass as

non-disabled autistic people who ascribe

to the spoon theory may report that

running out of spoons results in

meltdowns or burnout

[Music]

lifestyle diseases also sometimes called

diseases of longevity or diseases of

civilization interchangeably are defined

as diseases linked with the way people

live their life this is commonly caused

by alcohol drug and smoking abuse as

well as lack of physical activity and

unhealthy eating diseases that impact on

our lifestyle our heart disease stroke

obesity and type 2 diabetes the diseases

that appear to the increase in frequency

as countries become more industrialized

and people live longer they can include

Alzheimer's disease arthritis

atherosclerosis asthma cancer chronic

liver disease or cirrhosis chronic

obstructive pulmonary disease type 2

diabetes heart disease metabolic

syndrome chronic renal failure

osteoporosis stroke depression and

obesity in the U K the death rate is

four times higher from respiratory

disease caused by an unhealthy lifestyle

some commenters maintain a distinction

between diseases of longevity and

diseases of civilization certain

diseases such as diabetes dental caries

or asthma appear at greater rates in

young populations living in the western

way their increased incidence is not

related to age so the terms cannot

accurately be used interchangeably for

all diseases diet and lifestyle are

major factors thought to influence

susceptibility to many diseases drug

abuse tobacco smoking and alcohol

drinking as well as the lack of or too

much exercise may also increase the risk

of developing certain diseases

especially later in life between 1995

and 2005 813 thousand Australians were

hospitalized due to alcohol

in many Western countries people began

to consume more meat dairy products

vegetable oils tobacco sugary foods

coca-cola and alcoholic beverages during

the latter half of the 20th century

people also developed sedentary

lifestyles and greater rates of obesity

in 2014 11 point 2 million Australians

were overweight or obese rates of

colorectal cancer breast cancer prostate

cancer endometrial cancer and lung

cancer started increasing after this

dietary change people in developing
