Bible Study Notes on Being a Wife Part 3

Ephesians 5:33-  …and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.

-The sense that this word “respects” (phobeo in the Greek, from which we get the word phobia or fear) has this interpreted meaning: to reverence, venerate, to treat with deference or reverential obedience. Culturally speaking this is an anomaly. As Christian women, we are called to be countercultural, even radical, as we are transformed into the image Christ wants.
