The Grace Guide to Marriage – part 8

God has a grand design for marriage and it can be a source of great joy. Marriage is representative of Christ’s love for His church. Ephesians 5 has great insight into how wives are to love their husbands. What does “submit to your husband” mean? This does not mean that you are inferior to your husband. This passage refers to wives submitting to the Lord Jesus Christ and allowing Him to work through them to show their husbands love and respect. Men thrive on respect. If the whole world rejects them, but their wife stands by them and respects them, then all is well. Wives, ask the Lord Jesus to show you creative ways to show respect to your husband. This is the true meaning of submission – submitting to the Lord Jesus and responding to His leading in your marriage.
