Verse of the Day

Ephesians 5:22-23

For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church.

Ephesians 5:22-23

Wives, Submit to your Husbands

God commanded husbands to love their wives and wives to submit to or respect their husbands. He made male and female to live together as husband and wife and do life together. He gave them very different personalities. To the woman he gave a gentle heart and spirit. With that came the longing for her husband’s love. To the man he gave a decision making attitude and heart that guides others. With that, though, came the need for respect. It is no wonder that God tells the wives here to submit to their husbands’ authority. He knew that man would need to be respected if he was to lead his family.

Submitting and following your husband is one of the highest ways you can show him respect. God created him to be the head of the family just as Christ is the head of the church, so when you undermine him, you are undermining the authority God gave him. He made man and woman to fit together and complement each other.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,

You made a perfect union when you created male and female for each other. Help me be the person you created me to be in my marriage. Help me submit to my partner and work together in everything we do. Amen
