An Unshakable Marriage

An Unshakable Marriage
(1 Peter 3:1-7)

Historically, submission in marriage has received negative connotations. In a Christian Marriage, both husband and wife are called to be submissive to one another albeit in fundamentally distinct ways.

  • Submission in Marriage is Loving: Submission is a heart issue. When we are submissive to our spouse we do so out of love, not obligation.
  • Submission is Limited Relationally: This submissive love applies only to husbands and wives. Wives are not called to submit to all men and husbands are not being called to place the needs of all women before themselves.
  • Submission Produces Spiritual Blessings: A godly spouse can affect an unbeliever unlike anyone else. Through submission, wives can show the loving nature of Christ.
  • Submission Leads to Internal Beauty: We cannot allow external beauty to replace Godly character. Physical beauty fades but submission cultivates an unperishable beauty.
