“Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Ephesians 5:21
God our most Holy Friend, through your Son Jesus, you call us together and send us out as a new family, formed around you. Give us revelation and courage to live out the mystery of our faith and so make known the wisdom of God in the heavenly places, In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
- Read Ephesians 5:21-33. What comes to mind for you when you first read this text?
- How does the fact that the text begins with the command to, 'be subject to one another' change the way you view the text?
- Discuss how the washing of the disciples feet and Jesus' interaction with Pilate before his death (John 19:8-11) could affect the way we relate to those under our power and to those in power over us.
- What is one way you could follow the way of Christ in one of your relationships today?
