After reading a portion of Ephesians 5, Piper made a profound statement. Paul is explaining the relationship between Christ, His Church, and marriage. Christ is the head of the church. The husband is the head of the wife. We would not consider it right for the Church to switch roles with Christ. Wives ought not desire to swap roles with their husbands.
“Submission is the divine calling of a wife to honor and affirm her husband’s leadership and help carry it through according to her gifts.” — John Piper
