“The Fear of Christ is the Beginning of Wisdom: Ephesians 5:3-20” Ephesians challenges both “traditional” and “egalitarian” understandings of our primary role relationships: marriage, family, workplace. First, everyone of us participates in a common calling in all relationships to walk as a wife, child, and slave of the Lord (all that is described in 1:1-5:20 and 6:10-24). Second, the calling to walk worthy takes on a particular focus within each primary relationship of marriage, family, and workplace, emphasizing either submission or love. “Neither the common call nor the particular focus cancel out or override each other. They work in symphony.” Third, because you inhabit multiple roles, most of us hear ourselves addressed multiple times in 5:20-6:9, from different angles, and often with changes over time.
