His-mission

The word submission is God's design for all of our lives. God has asked us to each submit to what He has called of us.

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21

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

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority Peter 2:13



So ladies we are not alone in our call to submit. We all have our call to submit, but let's focus on our submission as wives.  If you look at the word submit, what does it mean?


Submit:
To yield or surrender (oneself) to the will or authority of another.
To subject to a condition or process.
To commit (something) to the consideration or judgment of another.

Take some time to look at wifely submission in another light. Instead of looking at it as sub-mission, try looking at it, in its truest form of the word His-mission. Because it is the call of Christ for us to do His will concerning our husbands. We are fulfilling His role for our marriages and our lives. We are blessed for doing what God's word says, rather than what we want for our lives. Hismission is a beautiful way to honor the Lord and show Christ in our actions.

Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, 1 Peter3:1

This has little to do with your husband and more to do with Christ. You are being faithful when you submit yourself to His word and His-mission for your marriage. Will you follow His design for your marriage today? You will reap all the benefits of a blessed marriage if you will just take a leap of faith and trust God. You'll be so glad that you did.
