The Believing Husband Gives of Himself

An Opportunity to Walk Worthily of the Evangel

Paul is telling us in 1 Corinthians 11 that the husband’s submission to Christ’s headship is to arise from his realization of Christ’s obedience to God’s headship. [A]s he grows in appreciation of Christ’s obedience to God, the believing husband comes to understand what his own headship over his wife signifies. As Christ gave of Himself for the good of the husband, so the believing husband gives of himself for the good of the wife. Headship, according as Paul presents it, is not an invitation to self-glorification and indulgence but an opportunity to walk worthily of the evangel of Christ (cf. Philippians 1:27).
