“In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.” Ephesians 5:28

 

The goal of loving my wife as Christ has loved the church is a lofty goal, not just in reality, but also in conception.  I know I do not fully grasp Christ love for me, because if I did I probably wouldn’t sin as much as I do.  In reality, I worship God little, because I worship myself much.  Paul knows this sinful tendency that we all have and how many people often fall short of grasping the love that Christ has for us, so Paul conveys this idea in terms that sinful man is familiar with.  The way I am to love my wife is the way that I love myself.  To the extent that I love myself is the degree that I should love my wife, in other words, I should love my wife a lot.
