The Role of A Godly Wife-1

First Peter 3:1-12 shares with us the behaviors of husbands and wives, however for the sake of this series I will talk about the role of a Godly wife. According to (1.Pt 3:1) the first role of a Godly wife is the role of Submission: Peter opens up by saying “Likewise ye wives, be in subjection to your own husband”. In the culture we live in today, not many women want to talk about submission but if you are a wife, it simply means to obey or come under the authority of. Submission is a key component to a healthy marriage. Submission is not surrender, withdrawal or apathy, biblical submission demonstrates your love for your husband, it glorifies God and it brings a power into the marriage and the home that you wouldn’t have otherwise. In essence, to submit to your own husband is to submit unto the Lord and anytime you obey God there is a blessing at the end of your obedience.

God Bless You
