Sermon notes

2 Timothy 2:3

Colossians 3:18-19

Submission is a relational asset for all people.

Submission is first and foremost to God.

  • Biblically, our marriage is for the purpose of honoring the name of Jesus
  • Secondly, marriage provides endless opportunities to grow by reflecting God’s love to others.
  • Thirdly, marriage is the backbone of home committed to extending God’s mission in the world.

Submission is a choice.

Submission involves 2 things:

  • Attitude
  • Actions

Submission is unforced.

1 Peter 2:13-14

1 Peter 3:1-2

1 Peter 3:7

Simply put, marriage works best when husbands sacrificially serve their wives, and wives gently respect their husbands.

Love and submission is a Christ-like response.
