Collect of the Day L Lord Jesus, in Your earthly ministry You were loved and served by devoted women, including Mary and Martha in whose home You enjoyed rest and refreshment. Give us grace to recognize and affirm the varied and singular gifts You bestow on women (and especially upon [name of women’s organization]) that Your kingdom may be extended, Your Church enriched, and Your people lovingly served to the glory of Your holy name; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Reading L A reading from Revelation, the twenty-first chapter. 9Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 11having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as
Reading crystal. 12It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed— 13on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates. 14And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. L This is the Word of the Lord. C Thanks be to God.
Holy Gospel P The Holy Gospel according to Saint John, the third chapter. C Glory to You, O Lord. 22After this Jesus and his disciples went into the Judean countryside, and he remained there with them and was baptizing. 23John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming and being baptized 24(for John had not yet been put in prison).
Holy Gospel 25Now a discussion arose between some of John’s disciples and a Jew over purification. 26And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, he who was with you across the Jordan, to whom you bore witness—look, he is baptizing, and all are going to him.” 27John answered, “A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven. 28You yourselves bear me witness, that I said,
Holy Gospel ‘I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him.’ 29The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. 30He must increase, but I must decrease.” P This is the Gospel of the Lord. C Praise to You, O Christ.

The Office of Wife “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” Revelation 21:9 To understand the calling (vocation) of the husband we contemplated ___________ So, to understand the calling of the wife we will now contemplate the ___________ All Christians are called to be “little Christ’s” to one another in any vocation. The wife is summoned to specifically be the “little church”
The whole church is called to be Christ’s bride. Scripture calls all people feminine in relationship to the masculinity of God. Therefore, the office of wife stands as an embodiment of the natural order for everyone. So, one’s understanding of wives will be colored by one’s understanding of church. Correctly – the church (and thus the wife) are to be recipients of love, sacrifice, and commitment.
The family is designed as an earthly manifestation of the gospel… giving and receiving are free Outside the home, one works to receive and in working also gives…but inside the home, no payment is expected for what is given or received. Husbands also receive – as human beings, members of the church – but are specifically called in marriage to play the Christ-like role as a giver. Wives, playing the churchlike role, are called to receive from their husbands
We often fail to see the vocational elements of receiving • 1 John 4:10; 19-21 • God’s love for us creates faith toward God, which bears fruit in love and service to our neighbor • The Christian responds to the love of God expressed in Christ’s sacrifice in faith, which then manifests itself in love for God. • Ephesians 5:33 • The wife responds to her husband’s love with respect, which then grows into love for him. We could say a woman has ‘faith’ in her husband rather than love. • “She loves because he first loved her”
