Have you been wanting to learn more about the Attributes of God? Well, you’re in luck. I just found out Ligonier Ministries is giving away a video series by Steven Lawson on The Attributes of God. It is absolutely free, just fill out the form in the link here.
If there is a misconception that makes me roll my eyes every time I hear it, it’s the one where people believe that when the Bible says a wife shall submit to her husband it means she must give up all will and obey her husband, as if he were some kind of tyrant and dictator. They believe she must completely disregard herself and her own opinions. I have heard so many people say they won’t marry because they will not obey any man, or be beneath any man. However, as Christians, the Bible calls wives to submit to their husband as the church submits to Christ.
“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.”
Ephesians 5:22-24 ESV
Sure, there have been very screwed up teachings in the past about this, but those teachings are not what is taught in the Bible. If someone is teaching that you must stay with your husband even is he is abusing you, that is not right.
Today I want to share a sermon my pastor preached this Sunday. It explains exactly what God meant in Ephesians 5:22-24. While I sat in church listening to this sermon I thought, I just had to share it. If you have never been taught what the Bible says about marriage and the wife’s role, I urge you to listen to the Sermon here or watch the sermon here on YouTube.
And even if you have been taught before, I still suggest you check this out just to refresh your memory and see God’s perfect plan for us explained. I know you will be truly blessed and edified by it and you will learn what God truly meant when He asked the wife to submit to her husband.
I love learning. I always have and maybe it’s because I was placed in Pre-K at a young age and was basically in school for over two-thirds of my life but I just love to learn new things.
So in this post, I want to share a new resource I found out about recently, and by recently, I mean today. It’s provided by Reformed Baptist Seminary. I have learned that they have tons of FREE courses. These courses are prepared by various teachers and are absolutely FREE. If you were looking for a new way to learn more about God and His word, I urge you to check them out.
“I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.”
Psalms 69:30 ESV
Despite my mutual respect and appreciation for both holidays, my sister has been recently complaining that I have skipped Thanksgiving and gone straight on to Christmas -and now that I’ve thought of it, she’s absolutely right. Over the course of the past week, I have already decorated a Christmas tree, gone shopping for Secret Santa and have sung along to at least 20 of my favorite Christmas tunes.
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him, we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
Romans 5:1-2 ESV
If you had asked me 8 years ago what Reformation Day was, I’d have looked at you with a blank stare. Seriously, I had no idea what it was and if you, like me 8 years ago, don’t know either, here is a quick lesson. And even if you do know, here’s a quick review. Continue Reading
