Come let us Grow Together is a weekly series that deals with the many topical categories that exist within the Word of God. The purpose of this series is to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in things pertaining to God.
Regardless of societal or cultural changes, we must remain steadfast, unshakeable, and unmovable in the Word of God. Are we being obedient to the roles in which God has ordained for us to walk in according to whether we be a husband or a wife?
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (Eph 5:22)
Wives, you are to submit yourselves unto your own husbands in like manner as you submit yourselves unto the Lord!! Are you fulfilling your role to your husband?
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Eph 5:23-24)
Even as the Church is subject unto Christ in every thing, even so wives are to be in subjection to their own husbands in every thing!!
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. (Eph 5:25-27)
Husbands, you are to love your wives and be willing to die for her even as Christ also loved the Church!! Are you fulfilling your role to your wife?
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (Eph 5:28)
Husbands you are to love your wife as your own body!!
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: (Eph 5:29)
Even as the Lord nourishes and cherishes the Church, even so must you husband’s love your wife!! Are you fulfilling your role to your wife?
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. (Eph 5:30-33)
Husbands, do you love your wives even as yourself?? Wives, do you reverence your husbands??
What if my husband is not in Church?
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. (1 Peter 3:1-2)
Are you fulfilling your role to your husband?
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; (1 Peter 3:3)
What adorning should it be then?
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. (1 Peter 3:4-6)
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. (Col 3:18-19)
Are you fulfilling your roles as God ordained for the husband and the wife?
Let’s fulfill our roles according to what thus saith the Word of God.
