Bible Quote 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.
28:17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.
28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
28:20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Bible Quote 5:18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.
5:19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,
5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

5:21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
5:22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
5:24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

5:26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
5:27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
5:28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
5:29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church--
5:30 for we are members of his body.

5:31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."
5:32 This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church.
5:33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
