How to Strive to Have a Godly Marriage - The Power of Submission

The Power of Submission

There's that word, submission, the world, and a lot of Christian women, love to hate. Godly submission isn't how the world sees submission. The worldly view is one of the husband bossing the wife and children around, the wife never having a say or a voice of her own, and the husband being abusive. This is NOT Godly submission.
Ephesians 5:22 - Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
I Peter 3:1 - 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;
When a wife submits to her husband, her behavior glorifies God. If he isn't already, your husband can get saved by your lifestyle, behavior and faithful service.

Fruit of the Spirit, Love

Fruit of the Spirit, Love

The Bible couldn’t be much clearer on Christian behavior than the fruits of the Spirit. It is narrowed down to 9 characteristics in Galatians 5 for us.
Anyone can display these characteristics, even the lost, from time to time, but for those of us who have the indwelling Holy Spirit these are actual fruits from the Holy Spirit that are displayed in us when we yield ourselves to Him.
