A Priest at the Door

“A husband must also be vigilant to protect his wife from spiritual harm. This is what Adam failed to do in the garden, and what Jesus faithfully did for us. A priest is one who guards and protects the sanctuary, and in this sense every Christian man is a priest in his home . . . The failure of Adam at this point was his fundamental failure, and it is the point where many of his male descendents find it far too easy to follow his example” (For a Glory and a Covering, p. 48).
