Love Her To Submission

Love Her To Submission

Love Her To Submission!

Love and submission are two most important thing and core of every marriage.

In fact, all arguments in marriage centers around this issue of submission and love.

It is no longer strange for couples to shout back and forth to each other about the fact that, the husband does not love the wife and the wife does not submit to her husband.

The bone of contention is not who should do what, but who should go first in ‘loving’ or ‘submitting’.

You will hear something like, ‘if you are a submissive wife, I will love you more than you can imagine.’

The wife also goes like, If you really love me, I will be the most submissive wife ever.’

So, the question is, is it the husband that should love his wife first or the wife that should submit first?

The bible is a manual for living right.

You can achieve results through various means but the Bible provides the best method.

For example, you could get rich by different means but the Bible shows us a better way.
God’s ways are always the best.

Joh 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus Christ came to model what marriage is supposed to look like. He never married but his whole existence was modelling what marriage ought to be.

Eph 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Rom 5:8
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

We see that Christ firstly died for us. The Bible recorded that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for the ungodly.

Just like Jesus left his Father to come down to earth, so a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife.

Just as Christ is the church, husbands are to be to their wives.

You have the responsibility of loving your wife to submission. Don’t coax her or force or demand submission from her. Let it flow as a result of your love for her.

It is not going to be easy. The wife may take his love for granted or even disrespect him.

The husband may even appear foolish.

Remember, the way of love eventually wins.

The husband that chooses to love his wife to submission will eventually gain his wife, earn her respect, affection, adoration and friendship.

The one who chooses to force her to submissive will have a wife that obeys out of fear but then would have lost oneness with her and genuine friendship which is the essence of marriage.

May God help us all.
