Gender Roles In Marriage II

Gender Roles In Marriage II

Marital roles.

Men and women in many aspects are very different. This is why God’s instructions and roles for both genders are different.

The reason we sometimes struggle with these instructions is because we define love according to worldly ideologies.

However, as believers, the word of God is our final authority.

God’s instruction to men is for them to love their wives. Ephesians 5:25

Three Ps that will help you understand the Biblical perspective of marriage as a man are:

The Bible instructs women to submit. Ephesians 5:22
📍Submission is not to all men but your own husband.
📍 Learn to see submission with a powerful lens, it doesn’t mean subjugation.

In understanding gender roles, there is an overarching principle of empathy.

The best advice for marriage is found in the word of God; walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Gal 5:16
