christian_main_300x300We can all think of situations in which a woman has done a fine job of serving her country as a political leader… For marriage, though, God offers a different model of leadership. Though we are equal in God’s eyes and colaborers in the kingdom, in the home the husband is head of the wife – providing he’s willing to die for her. His leadership comes only via sacrifice. With such a servant-leader in the family, biblical submission is an act of worship… and is a whole lot easier.

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.”
Ephesians 5:22,25
