Submission & Obedience.

Ephesians 5:21-25 talks of the submission of the Christian wife. 

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 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. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Submission is different from independence. Many ladies believe that they can't be relying on men and they have to do everything their own way. Women have become slightly stubborn  in their thoughts of equality. We are indeed equal to the male race when concerning humanity. HOWEVER, the man is the head of the household and we, as respectable women of Christ, need to respect that. 


Everyone needs to obey. Obey God. Obey authoritative figures. Obey and respect your father and mother. 

Women are no exception. It is said that a virtuous woman is obedient. 

John 15:14 is written, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments."

Isaiah 1:19 says, "If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;"

Titus 3:1 is as follows, "Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,"

Last but not least, Proverbs 6:20 is written, "My son, keep your father's commandments, and forsake not your mother's teaching."
