How We Should Love - Martin Bucer

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, (Ephesians 5:25 ESV)


Christ is put forward as the example of how we should love, and that is the most effective argument. How great was Christ's love? What kind of love was his? Christ voluntarily gave himself up to death because of his great love for us – the greatest love anyone could have, in fact. The apostle asks us to imitate him.
