A Christian woman's role as a godly wife

(By Alexander Thomas)

Wives, know this great principle. Only God alone is able to meet all your needs. A husband simply cannot meet all of his wife's needs. Only Christ can meet every essential need. As long as you look to your husband to meet your deepest needs you will be frustrated perpetually and disappointed.

It is only in Jesus Christ than you will find true fulfillment. In talking to Him in prayer and meditating His Word, in learning of Him, in walking with Him, you will find the satisfaction your heart is craving.

Every wife would love to have the perfect husband, an impossible goal. All husbands are less than perfect. The only successful method for creating an ideal spouse is to become one yourself.

1 Submission
Submit to your husbandís God given authority and leadership, with obedience (Ephesians 5:22)
Submission in what? In everything.
The submission that wives are to show to their husbands is an example of the submission that all believers are to show to one another (Ephes. 5:21). It does not mean that women are inferior to men. It simply means that there is to be an arrangement, an order in the household. Two heads in any body or organization would be a monstrosity and make for disorder. Therefore, in God's order for the family, the husband is the head over the family. The husband arranges things in a spirit of tenderness and love and the wife is to submit herself in a spirit of understanding.
Not only in what she chooses or likes (Eph 5:24)
Submit to your husband as unto the Lord (Eph 5:21; Col 3:18)
Rebellion and hatred towards your husband is equal to rebellion against God, who gave him the authority to be your headship.
Remain under his covering of authority by submitting to him.
Not dominate, manipulate, control, nag, argue, criticize against his delegated God given authority
Wives, continue to love the Lord with all your heart and soul, with all your mind and strength for it is only in Him that you will find the answer to the cry of your heart.

2. Respect and honor your husband (Eph 5:33)
Do to the husband good all the days of the life (Pro 31:11-12)
Honor him by accepting his God given leadership
Use words that honor him, not insult or depreciate him
Make his priorities as your own priorities
Not to speak negatively about him to family members, and friends at privately or publicly
Know this principle. A husband simply cannot meet all of his wife's needs. Only Christ can meet every need. That is the only way it works.

3. Godly character - behavior (1 Pt 3:1-6)
Use words that are helpful, and without reproach, along with good behavior - Titus 2:4-5.
Always rejoice in the Lord
Think on things which are good, true and holy (Phil 4: 8)
Do not deprive one another (1 Corinthians 7:5)
Wives are to win their husbands simply submitting to them, not preaching to them 1 Peter 3:1 - 2.

4. Support to your husband as a help meet. that was God's original plan (Gen 2:18)
Uphold him in your daily prayer
Encourage him through your actions and your words
Raise your husband's self-esteem by delighting to spend time with him
Surround him with your love, body, emotions, mind, spirit
Fulfill well your duties and responsibilities in the home.
Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh is Hebrew idiom meaning exact counterpart (Genesis 2:23)
