Wives Must Submit

Text: "Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord." Ephesians 5:22

Tomorrow, ladies, we will talk about the men. But for today, our text says that "submission" is the biblical modus operandi for a Christian married woman.

In this world of political correctness, feminism and egalitarianism, it almost sounds strange to insist that the godly woman's role in marriage is one of submission. But if she pursues that biblical injunction, she will discover that her husband will love her as he loves himself.

My mother-in-law is with the Lord now, but I well remember her and Dad coming to visit shortly after my wife and I were married. My observation as a twenty-something pastor and son-in-law was that she was not very submissive to her own husband. So, I proceeded to exhort her to a more submissive lifestyle.

She let me blunder on for a while. (Actually, I didn't realize it then, but I was letting out the rope for my own hanging!)

Then, abruptly, she said, "If you men would love your wives as yourselves, you wouldn't have any trouble with submission."

Touche! That kept me quiet for a while. I'm now older and hopefully wiser, and I have come to recognize one thing--mothers-in-law know a thing or two!
