Dose: Spirit-Guided Relationships
Ephesians 5:21-Wives and Husbands submit to one another. Submitting to another person is an often misunderstood concept. Submitting to one another doesn’t mean to become each other’s doormat.
Christ submitted His will to the Father. Therefore, in a Christian marriage both wives and husbands are called to submit to each other.
Husbands and Wives Submit to Each Other
For the wife this means willingly following her husband’s leadership in Christ. (Ephesians 5:22-24)
For the husband it means putting aside his own interests in order to care for his wife. (Ephesians 5:25-27)
Remember, submission goes both ways and is rarely a problem in households where the husband and wife both have a strong relationship with Christ.
