Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing in the Lord. In the Scripture, there are only four chapters without sin Genesis 1—2 and Revelation 21—22and therefore even the Scripture has many tragic stories about families. It shows the devastating effects of sin on the family.
Adam and Eve sinned, and Adam responded by blaming his wife. They parented two male children, and one of the sons killed the other. Jacob married several wives like his grandfather. His twelve sons eventually sold their younger brother into slavery. David too espoused many wives and his son raped his sister. When we consider the biblical narrative, we see many family relationships that were Moon Song - Roland Kirk - We Free Kings by sin.
In fact, today we even see the effects of sin in the redefinition of marriage. Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible some cultures men take many wives and in others homosexual marriage is acceptable. Are the relationships I have with my family a proper reflection of my heavenly standing in Christ? When a believer was saved, he was spiritually identified with Christ. He died with Christ; he rose from the dead with Christ.
He is now seated with Christ in heavenly places Eph. However, this position should not simply be a mental note or point of theology for a Christian; it should radically change his life. It should change the way a person thinks.
Paul says to think on things above and not on the things of the earth v. This position in Christ should affect every thought.
Paul tells the church to take off the old clothing of sin and put on the new clothing of righteousness, which fits our heavenly position in Christ. Put on love, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, bearing with one another, etc. In Colossians —17, Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible describes the priorities of our heavenly position, the outer garments of every believer. The Christian must let the peace of Christ rule in his life. We should make every decision based on the reality of whether this decision will disrupt our peace with Christ and his body.
We must let the Word of Christ dwell richly in us. It must be our desire to know the Word of God more daily and Various Appeals* - Vampyric Screams. allow it to overflow in our lives.
We also must do everything in the name of the Lord. We must seek his glory in everything we do. These are the priorities of the heavenly citizen. How should my position in Christ affect my family life? Big Question: What are the responsibilities of each member of the family according to Paul?
They are equal. However, to have order in Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible military, authority must exist in the relationship or chaos will ensue. In the same way, when God made the husband and wife relationship, he made it with order so that it would function properly.
Submission Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible not imply that the wife is less than the husband, for Scripture clearly proclaims the equality of all in Christ. There is equality in Christ. However, our equality and unity in Christ does not remove our roles. What Hip Hop (Interlude) - Ace Hood - Starvation III teaches does not change the fact that the slave was still supposed to submit to and obey his master cf.
That was his role even though he was equal with the master in his standing before God. They say women no longer need to submit to their husbands, or that women do not need to practice submission in the church 1 Tim. This greatly damages the teachings of Scripture. They are meant to fit together and not contradict one another. Interpretation Question: Why is the woman called to submit to the man?
How is this reflected in the rest of Scripture? In marriage, the male and female together as one are a reflection of the Trinity. How do we see this? In addition, a crucial aspect of his deity is authority and submission in the Godhead, which is also reflected in the marriage union. God is the head of Christ.
He obeys the Father. In a similar vein, when God made male and female in his image, he put authority and submission in that relationship. The marriage relationship is a reflection of the Trinitarian relationship. This unity and authority in the marriage is a reflection of how mankind is made in the image of God. With that said, sin Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible distorted the image of God in man.
We see the effects of this corruption specifically in the marriage union right after the fall. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.
Does this mean that because of sin the woman would naturally want to serve her husband? Absolutely not! It actually means the opposite. We see this word used in Genesis of sin in relation to Cain. She would seek to manipulate him in order to get her own way.
Also, the man, instead of loving his wife as we will see in the next passage Col. He would seek to dominate her. One of the beautiful aspects of the Trinity is that God the Father does not dominate or force Christ to submit to him. In fact, in 1 JohnGod is defined as love.
In the same way, as a husband I am not called to demand that Rescue Me - Tokio Hotel - Best Of wife submit to me. I am to love her, care for her, encourage her to grow in God, and Janis Martin - The Complete RCA her. My wife is to submit to me willingly. I cannot force it.
At the fall, marriage was broken. Submission in the context of a loving relationship was destroyed, and as a result we see brokenness in the majority of marriages. Over fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. The wife tries to control the husband, and the husband tries to rule and dominate the wife.
In fact, marriage is becoming redefined totally as no longer simply between one man and one woman. The image of God has been totally distorted and the consequences are disorder in our society. If the home is broken, then you can be sure the education system is broken, and the government is broken since the home is the foundation of society. God started his building of a community on the earth with a marriage, and when the marriage does not work correctly everything else becomes distorted.
He was never inferior or less in comparison to God the Father. However, he willfully and joyfully submits to the Father. In the same way, the wife must submit to her Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible because this is fitting in the Lord. Application Question: What are some common reactions in society to this teaching? Why is the submission of the wife to Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible husband so important?
Paul says to the husbands that they should love their wives. Now, it should be known that in the ancient context this was a pretty radical statement. It pushed against the norms of society. William Barclay describes both the Jewish and Greek ancient context in reference to women in his commentary on Colossians.
Look at what he says:. She had no legal rights whatever. For instance, under Jewish law, a husband could divorce his wife for any cause, while a wife had no rights at all in the initiation of divorce; Whos The Daddy - New Flesh - Universally Dirty the only grounds on which a divorce might be awarded her were if her husband developed leprosy, gave up his beliefs or sexually assaulted a virgin.
In Greek societya respectable woman lived a life of entire seclusion. She never appeared on the streets alone, not even to go shopping. Complete servitude and chastity were demanded of her; but Space Lord - Monster Magnet - Powertrip To Cologne husband could go out as much as he chose and could enter into as many relationships outside marriage as he liked without incurring any social criticism.
Under both Jewish and Greek laws and custom, all Do Lord - The Ogdon Family - Family Bible privileges belonged to the husband and all the duties to the wife. In Jewish and Greek culture, the woman had little to no rights. She was a piece of property meant to serve the husband. The husband was commanded to love his wife, which was radical. He is called to love like Christ. Ephesians —28 says. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemishbut holy and blameless.
