In order for a marriage to be successful, both partners must submit to the roles God ordained for them. Submission is a simple plan, but it demands patience and it requires the Holy Spirit.
In a day when half of all marriages fail, we all need insight that stands the test of time. We need wisdom from Scripture to equip us to transform our own union from a lacklustre contract into an intimate and exciting relationship.
Whether you're recently engaged, just realizing the honeymoon is over, or celebrating your golden anniversary, Insight for Living remains committed to helping couples cultivate honesty, exhibit grace, and experience a joy and intimacy in marriage that they never thought possible.
Marriage, as God intended it, is a mutual thing. It goes both ways—God never asks more of one than the other, though He asks the maximum of everyone.
Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship. Christlike leadership is based on love, grace, and honour.
Submission doesn’t mean wives are doormats, blindly carrying out orders. It means they’re willingly supportive of their husband’s leadership. Dignity, equality, and unity are the essentials of submission.
Mature love doesn’t grow cold over the years. True love is long term; it doesn’t give up. That’s how Christ loves us.
In the unpredictable journey of marriage, Scripture is the map that points us in the right direction and keeps us on track.
We all know love is important to marriage. But how much thought do we give to grace in marriage? It can make all the difference in a relationship.
I can testify to this truthfully: When grace awakens in a husband’s heart, he begins to care for the one God gave him in a new and deeper way. He becomes increasingly aware of his wife’s value, her giftedness, and her significance.
Anyone can rebel—it comes easily to us. But it takes great strength of character to be humble and live in submission to others.
How a husband treats his wife speaks volumes about his character. A masculine and secure husband honours his wife, and he allows her the freedom to be herself.
