A Word to Wives - Nathan Rages
Eph. 5:22-24 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
1. The submission command and its broad scope.
2. Things the command does *not* mean:
Women are inferior to men.
Women must submit to all males.
A wife must always agree with her husband.
A wife must endure physical abuse.
A wife must disobey God.
3. Encouragements in obeying the command:
By submitting to your husband, you’re actually submitting to the Lord.
Your husband’s headship is God’s design from Creation.
Your husband, if he’s at all Christ-like, will be sacrificially loving you.
4. Thoughts for unmarried women: affirmation and caution.
