For Wives Only: Can I Submit to My Husband?

Often, I make my Monday posts about the subject of marriage. I like to call it Marriage Monday. Today however, I am introducing another Blogger to you who writes on the subject of marriage from the wife’s perspective. Her name is Jill and she is my wife. I enjoy her posts and I am sure you will as well. You can find her blog at: Please visit and subscribe…you will be glad you did. So, enjoy the excerpt below:

Can I Submit to My Husband? Pt. 1

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Ephesians 5:22-24)(KJV)

SubmitI have something to confess. When I was a single woman in the church I had a problem with this scripture. When I spoke to my single sisters in Christ, I found they felt the same way. Especially after all we’ve done to become self-sufficient and self-governing. In the “Jill Translation,” which I read often, this scripture read;

  • Be a doormat
  • Have no opinions
  • Become a servant
  • He will dominate me
  • I am a second class citizen
  • My life is over

I wasn’t ready to give up what I had worked so hard to achieve, which was me.
