7/7/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit to your husbands as 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. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

This passage of scripture is not usually found upon the most favorite list of many people, especially those of the female persuasion, but it also makes men uncomfortable. The topic of submission is never one that is brought up at family gatherings around a scrumptious meal or a holiday gathering, but it is one that causes people to lose sleep. Biblical, marital, submission is called by many outdated and sexist; but it is a mandate given by God. What people seem to forget is that men and women are different, that men and women were created to take on different roles within a marriage. But as both center themselves around God, there will always be mutual respect. As each person embraces their position in the relationship and their relationship with God, there will always be a powerful love present.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me fill the role within my relationships in a manner that will enhance them and bring You glory.
