'' Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands , as unto the Lord.''
(A) The wife is given the God-appointed task of helping and submitting to her
husband. Her duty to her husband includes:
1.) LOVE: Titus 2:4 ''That they may teach the women to be sober, to love their
husbands, to love their children.''
2.) RESPECT: Eph. 5:33 ''And the wife see that she reverence her husband.''
3.) 1 Peter 3:1-2 ''Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husband, that
if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be
won by the conversation ( behavior) of the wife. While they
behold your chaste (virtuous, pure, spotless) conversation,
coupled with fear.''
4.) SUBMISSIVENENESS: 1 Peter 3:5 ''For after this manner in the old time the
holy women also, who trusted in God,
adorned themselves, being in subjection
unto their own husbands.''
A wife submiss.
Note: A wife submissiveness to her husband is seen by God as
an actual part of her obedience to Jesus as unto the Lord.
5.) Gen. 2:22-23 '' And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made He
a woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my
flesh; she shall be called woman, because, she was taken out of
1 Peter 3:6 '' Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord: whose daughters
ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amaze-
''THE WIFE HATH NOT POWER OF HER OWN BODY''
1 Cor.7:4 '' The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband; and likewise also the
husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.''
1 Cor.7:5 '' Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time.''
NOTE: The commitment of marriage means that each partner relinguishes the exclusive right
to his or her own body and gives the other a claim to it. That is, neither marriage
partner may fail to submit to the normal sexual desires of the other. Such desires
within the marriage are natural and God-given, and to refuse to carry out one's
responsibility in fulfilling the other's need is to open the marriage up to satan's
temptation of adultery.
