Shall We Dance?

Ballroom dance is such a beautiful form of expression. Especially when both partners follow the roles that have been assigned to them. They appear graceful and seem to float through the air. In dance, there is one who takes the lead and one who follows. When done in that order, the end result is a harmonious dance that captivates audiences.

As in dance, marriages have similar roles for each partner. The scripture describes each partners roles in the marriage to keep it beautifully in sync.

Ephesians 5:22-33
Colossians 3:17-19
1 Peter 3:1-7

God's creations and His word is a beautiful work of art as well. He has designed a system that coordinates a harmonious union between husband and wife. He has made man to take the lead and hold marriage on his shoulder. Each step depends on his ability to follow through with what God has spoken through his word. We as wives are to follow the lead and float gracefully across the dance floor without thinking much of what the next step is. As dancers submit to the rhythm of the music, the man takes the lead and the woman follows his steps. So as in marriage, we both listen to the sweet melody of God's voice, husbands plan out the next step and takes the lead and wives step in unison with him. What results is a glorious marriage, that floats eloquently through the dance floor of life, to the tune of the sweet melody of Christ's word.
