Part 1: Wives vs. Husbands

Ephesians 5:21-25 (KJV)

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

So something I have really honed in on is something I didn’t fully notice before I met Shane. I am a woman, a mother, at one point a wife. Everything I say in this is out of love, though surely there will be some that have ill feelings towards it. In the scripture above it speaks of the roles of a husband an wife. Now, if you truly know Jesus and love God you know that He is PERFECT and EXACT and God of ORDER. So exactly as it is written. In marriage you are instructed  to SUBMIT to EACH OTHER  in fear of God. Meaning, that it is a requirement to regard your spouse before yourself. Then in EXACT ORDER…… WIVES SUBMIT yourselves unto your husbands, as unto the Lord. WHHHAAAATTT?!?!?!?! What does it mean to be submitted to God? What does it mean to submit? FULL and TOTAL SURRENDER of ones well being, body, possessions, and ENTIRE life. That’s ridiculous you ladies might say….. totally allow a man to dictate my life? Are you crazy?…. HAHAHAHA God answers that in EXACT ORDER. For the Husband is the HEAD of the wife. EXACT ORDER of LIFE…. GOD, HUSBAND, WIFE, KIDS, House. Ladies, this means that in direct reflection to your marriage and house hold lands not on your husbands shoulders…. but YOURS. He is to lead you are to follow. Have you ever tried moving your body in a particular direction but not your head? Your body cannot walk away from the direction the head is going. Have you tried to keep your body upright yet tilt your head way back? Your body follows the direction of the head no matter if you wanted it to or not. In EXACT ORDER the scripture continues… even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body. THEREFORE as the church is SUBJECT UNTO Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands IN EVERYTHING. WHAT??? Did GOD just say that?!?!?! YES!!! What women don’t get, is that this is the FIRST things that MUST be done BEFORE the husband gives love to the wife. And YES I just went there. God designed it this way end of story. In EXACT ORDER, husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it. This is where the husband cherishes, adores, protects, provides, and laces his wife fulfilling her in every way. See your husband operates on respect, while the wife operates on love. Ask any man if he rather have love or respect more…. Respect is the number 1 answer. He has the weight of God on him. designed by God, your husband is to lead the wife and children to Jesus. He is to the decision maker, the provider, the protector, and the LEADER. Everything that transpires from his house he is responsible for and that INCLUDES the wife. Don’t get it twisted ladies this doesn’t mean you control things from the background or that you can act any type of way.  This means he leads you follow. Don’t jump the gun gentleman this doesn’t give you authority to do as you please either. ABSOLUTE PARTNERSHIP in a marriage. Give and take. YET, as the wife your feelings and thoughts have value and merit…. wait for it…. THE ULTIMATE DECISION IS FROM THE HUSBAND!!! (DANG I Just said that) YES!!! That is why God reprimands the the husband as well as the wife when the wife jacks up. Guy’s you may be saying THAT’S NOT FAIR. Hey, your the leader and the head ….. we follow you.
