We 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.”
