1/28/13 Daily Devotion

1 Peter 3:1-2 Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, [2] when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

The manner in which families are to be formulated was designed by God. Peter states that wives are to submit to their husbands, so they may be won over to the Lord. There are many women who have difficulty with this action. They feel that they should have equal rights within the family; they feel they should have equal rights within the marriage. Equality is a necessity within every marriage, but within this equality God has given each spouse specific roles. Within these specific roles, the marriage will be blessed, and God will be glorified. Does your marriage reflect the desires of God? Does your marriage reflect the role God has called you to take within your marriage?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become an example of Your desires within my marriage.
