MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL 10TH MARCH 2023 MESSAGE:
Today, we are digging further into Sarah’s life on the subject of submission as it applies to homes and marriages. What is submission from biblical standpoint? Before we look at this, let us have a peep into what submission is not.
Submission is not subjugation. Subjugation is a state of bringing a person under control by force and it is oppressive in nature. Marriage is not a platform for oppression. Submission is not a woman agreeing on everything, thereby putting the will of the husband before the will of Christ. Submission is not the woman leaving her brain on the altar. It is not the woman living or acting in fear. It is not the woman getting all of her strength both spiritual and otherwise from the man, but from God.
What then is submission from biblical standpoint? It is a divine instruction for women in marriage. It is the calling of a wife to honour and affirm her husband’s leadership, as unto the Lord. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything” (Ephesians 5:24).

Wives are to submit to and respect their husbands, the way the church does to Christ. The matriarch, Sarah, has shown us an example of how a godly woman should treat her husband. She called him Tord”, and she honoured him. Wives should do likewise. 1 Peter 3:5 says, “For after this manner in old time, the holy women also, who trusted in God, adored themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:” Virtuous women do not treat their husbands with contempt; they respect and honour them. The book of Proverbs 31 has a lot to say about a virtuous woman who respects and honours her husband (v. 11-12,23,28).
Contrarily, these days, to see the alarming rate at which Christian marriages are crashing. Husbands are not ready to submit to Christ, wives do not submit to their husbands; children are becoming more arrogant and unruly and no one wants to submit to another. Everyone seeks to do their thing their own way. This is nothing but contempt and disobedience to God’s instructions for homes and marriages. This is not the gospel handed to us. This is not the divine order for homes. Many Christian wives should return to God and His word and be obedient so that their homes will prosper and their marriages will be successful. May God grant us the grace to retrace our steps, in the name of Jesus.
