“Holy, Holly, Holy”

RE Verse reading–Ephesians 5:21-33 (day seven)
“As the church submits to Christ, so also wives must submit to their husbands” v 24.  It is a Guthrie family story.  Holly used to be a church secretary.  One day she typed the song title for the bulletin.  “Holy, Holly, Holy”.  Actually, it is true.  She has been a holy influence on our family.  From her, I have learned much about my own relationship to Christ.  Holly never asks me for things that she thinks are contrary to my own best sense.  She dedicates herself to my welfare, tirelessly shapes the right environment for our sons and their families.  Do I do as well toward the Head of the church?  I hope so!  If wives learn by watching the church respond to Christ, the church is blessed when we see what strong submission looks like by watching them.  Happy Father’s Day!  May all Christian men submit to God and lead our families to Him.
