18Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
"submit yourselves" -- means to voluntarily -- yield, place herself under the authority of her husband.
Wifely submission can not mean forced; it must come from her free will.
"As it is fit in the Lord" means that the wife's submission to her husband is proper in her relationship with Christ: ("it is fit in the Lord") submission rendered to her husband is submission rendered to Christ. ~ She is to submit "as it is fit in the Lord."
~ This is for the purpose of order in the home. -- This is not for the purpose of producing a browbeating husband. -- God didn't mean for a wife to submit to an unsaved husband who beats her, or orders her to do things contrary to her walk with the Lord.
~ There is nothing here, to do with inferiority, but a matter of authority and responsibility in the home. ---- The wife is a helpmeet (a help suitable to the husband), not a slave. The family is held together by authority and obedience.
~~ Adam was first formed. -- He was designed for headship by God.
ADAM was formed, --- EVE was made.
"Eve" was taken from Adam's side, at that time they were equal, this was before she was deceived.
@@@@ > Genesis 2: 20- 23 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and HE took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
~ Of all of God's creations, only woman could meet the innermost needs of the man, and only woman was designed to meet those needs.
We've all heard the old saying; it's Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve.
~ As man is the crown of God's creation, so woman is the prized jewel in that crown. --- God made the ladies with an emotional need for attention.
>1st. Peter 3:6 -- giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
~ Husbands, this verse implies that if we don't honor our wife, our prayers may be hindered.
>1st. Timothy 2: 11-14 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. -- 13For Adam was first formed, then Eve. -- 14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
> Titus 2:4 That they [the women]may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
~ In Gen.3: just after Eve transgressed, God talks with Adam, then Eve, then the serpent, and then we read in verse;
> Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
* The later part of vs.16 is God's law.- and he shall rule over thee.
~ The woman being deceived or beguiled by Satan indicates a fundamental tendency, which shows the woman should not be the leader in the home or the church. --- This let's out women preachers. -- She can teach women & children.
~The woman should give careful consideration to her husband's leadership in the teaching responsibilities, not because of inadequate faculties for reasoning and decision making, but as a means of avoiding confusion, and in complying with Gods Law, Gen.3:16 "thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee."
