In marriage, there is no struggle for control of the throne when Jesus alone sits on the throne of your home. The way to end the battle of the sexes and establish roles in marriage is for men and women to get off the throne and let God build their homes!
IF YOU DON’T WANT A MARRIAGE ON THE ROCKS, DON’T ROCK THE ROLLS
Responsibilities are interchangeable; roles aren’t!
In marriage, men and women are equal, but we’re not the same – we differ in function. Our society has tried to reverse the roles, erase the roles, and rock the roles, but it’s God who ultimately defines the roles in marriage!
SUBMISSION IS WHAT ENDS THE COMPETITION
God’s blessing on the family always flows through a chain of command. The key to overcoming marital conflict and division is mutual submission. When a husband and wife are in submission to God, they will naturally be in submission to each other.
God puts authority in our lives not to oppress us but to protect and bless us. The wife submits to her husband’s lead, and the husband submits to his wife’s needs! When a man and a woman choose humility and submit to their spiritual authority, God brings peace and prosperity to their family.
