The Key To Great Relationships
Ephesians 5:21-6:9

August 8, 2010

The Key To Great Relationships is learning to yield to others.

Define Yielding:
When I Consider your deal better than my deal.

Yield to obey each other because you respect Christ.
Ephesians 5:21 (NCV)

Yielding to God and others means that I…

A. Love my wife

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

B. Follow my husband

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Ephesians 5:22-24 (NIV)

C. Obey my parents

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
Ephesians 6:1 (NIV)

D. Gently discipline my children

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but raise them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 (NET)

E. Serve my boss

Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,
Ephesians 6:7 (NIV)

F. Respect my employees

And masters, treat your slaves in the same way.
Ephesians 6:9 (NIV)

What do I do when my boss, spouse, parent or child is not following Jesus Christ?

Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, 2 when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. 1 Peter 3:1-2 (NIV)
