The 'S' Word...Submission.



Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Ephesians 5:22-23

Oh my goodness, this word, submission, makes the hair stand up on the backs of many ladies necks and may make some men feel empowered. God's idea of Biblical submission does not relegate wives to a doormat or whipping post position but is actually freeing.

The Bible has commands for woman and men in the marriage relationship. I heard from a ladies Bible study teacher long ago that imagine God having a giant umbrella. Next  the  husband had a slightly smaller umbrella, and finally the wife had the smallest one. This does not mean she is not important! The theory is man is to stay under God's authority and likewise the wife was to stay not only under God's but under her husbands also. When you strut and step out from under this protection then you are not protected.

Simply said God has designed a channel of leadership for a purpose. It does not imply one is better than the other. Feminists today would do themselves a huge favor if they would stop tying to prove they can do it all no relax under the design of God's plan for mankind.

PRAYER: I am thankful and happy for your design for creation Lord. Help those individuals who may have the wrong opinion and may have rebellion in their hearts. In Jesus' name. Amen.
