“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 everything.”
To “submit” means to “yield” If the word “submit” is substituted for “yield”, this verse takes a new colour. In verse 22, God starts with the weak point by giving an instruction to the wife. We must understand that we are not going to get into solutions in marriage as long as women are taking a wrong position on marriage. God says the wife should submit to her husband.
Whatever the challenge facing a marriage, if this point is adhered to, the marriage will succeed. Wives must come to a place of submission in their marriage. And every woman can do it because God will never give you a commandment in an area that you cannot perform it. In I John 5:3, we are shown that the commandments of the Lord are not grievous.
