Mothers Day

 The Bible is full of many stories of who the women is and how God created them to bear forth children that would be a blessing to our world as they accepted their role. God did not create anything to limit us, we limit ourselves as we disobey the will of the Lord.

God knows exactly what we need and Peters words here in the 3rd chapter of 1 Peter 3 gives an account of what the husbands and wives needed to do as he describes their role beginning with the wife.

We all need to be in unity, love, have compassion, peace and patience under suffering, to oppose the slander of the enemies, not by returning evil for evil, or railing for railing, but by blessing one another. This only happens when both are connected to the Lord for the work of a help meet, giving faith and hope the opportunity to work with our consciences. We all want something good to happen, right?

Now let’s look at verse 1 Wives Likewise is in reference to what was said about Jesus in Chapter 2: 18-25

18 Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh. 19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us,[f] leaving us[g] an example, that you should follow His steps:

22 “Who committed no sin,
Nor was deceit found in His mouth”; [
h]

23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer[i] of your souls.

1 Peter 3 (NKJV) Submission to Husbands

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fearNow it is hard to relax as we abide in the Lord, yet when we do we realize the importance of 1. Relationships have a duty, which we have to preach and we all need to understand, in order to have God’s blessing upon our lives in the world we are living in when Women’s rights are being protested. 2. We need a cheerful subjection, that is a loving respect rather good or bad, Adam and Eve fell because of seeing what God said, do not eat of the tree of Good and Evil Satan made sure she; desired, took and ate and gave to Adam and they both hid. The respect for God will was denied and they listen to Satan. God restored their relationship by giving them consequences for their sinning against God. Now life is much more difficult and we need the Lord as Satan is still doing all he can to upset women and men in a loving relationship working together for the good of both. 3. The design of the Gospel is to win souls to Christ. Letting Him rule and reign as we read the Bible, as we are won by the word. 4. Nothing more powerful than the Bible in winning people to the Lord and the careful discharge of our duty is to communicate the Gospel. 5. Irreligion and infidelity do not dissolve the binds, nor dispense with the duties, of civil relations; the wife must discharge her duty to her own husband, through he obeys not the word.

1. Evil men are strict observers of the conversation of the professors of religion; their curiosity, envy, and jealousy, make them watch narrowly the ways and lives of good people. 2. A chaste conversation, attended with due and proper respect to everyone, is an excellent means to win them to the faith of the gospel and obedience to the word.  Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. Here are three sorts of ornaments forbidden plaiting of hair, which was commonly used by lewd women; wearing of gold, or ornaments made of gold, was a practiced by Rebecca, and Esther, and other religious women, but afterward became the attire of harlots and wicked people. Putting on of apparel, which was not forbidden, but only tools much nicety and costliness in it. Religious people should take care that their external behavior be answerable to their profession of Christianity.  It is important they must be holy in all conversation. Secondly, the outward adorning of the body is very often sensual and excessive. When you are proud of it and puffed up with it, when you dress to allure and tempt others, by your richness and immodesty, as if your wanton to show you’re a harlot, can never become a chaste Christian. Instead of the outward adorning of the body, he directs Christian wives to put on more excellent and beautiful ornaments. The hidden man of the heart; that is the souls rather than the body. Be general not corruptible, for that is what makes the soul beautiful. Imagination, memory, reason, conscience and affection all show the virtues of God’s Holy Spirit. It is the grace of God, the longer we wear it, the brighter and better it is. To have a meek and quit spirit is having an easy tempered minded, void of passion, pride and immoderate anger, discovering a quit and obliging behavior towards their husbands and families, needs to be seen. If the husband be harsh, and adverse to religion, there is no way you’re likely to win him, we need a prudent meek behavior. That is a quite spirit will make it easy for yourself, for it is visible to others and becomes an ornament to a person in the eyes of the world. It is excellent display of meekness and calmness of spirit in the sight of God, of great price. Lord help us to learn the true Christian’s chief care, lies in the right ordering and commanding of his own spirit. It is so easy to get angry and say thing that are very degrading when we give way to anger of any kind. 

For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror. It is difficult for or natures to sense always the need to be holy women who trust the Lord. Our sexuality is old and we still have to work at becoming like God, holy and pure, so we can be trusted without neglecting our duties to man. This is not new, it has to be practiced by the greatest of women in the world. Sarah, obeyed her husband and followed him to Ur not know where that was and called him Lord, showing reverence and acknowledging his superiority over her. She was not forced, but wanted to obey without questions. The greatest honor of any man, or women lies in a humble and faithful deportment of themselves in the relation, or condition in which Providence has placed them. God takes notice of the good that is in his servants, to their honor and benefit, and coves a multitude pf failings. Sarah’s infidelity and derision are overlooked, when her virtues are celebrated. Christians need to do their duty to one another, not out of fear, nor from force, but from a willing mind, and obedience to the word of God.

A Word to Husbands

Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered. As a husband, I have to work all the time to make sure I am fill of the Spirit of the Lord and that is Holy, for it is so easy to revert back to the old man with wanting control. We need understand like never before in our world, for we are bombarded with all kinds of problems that do not make sense. Yet is up to us to read the word of God and believe that Gods word is truth and He wants us to be equipped as men to have the helmet of Salvation on, the breast plate of righteousness on, the thighs girded with truth, or feet shod with the preparation of peace and the sword of the spirit to be able to stand and resist all the forces of evil
