Winning the Lost by Losing the Battle

March 21, 2021

In the Christian life, winning is losing and losing is winning. What I mean by this is, as an American we are obsessed with winning and that is ok until it takes on a worldly take.

  1. The Reason for Submission
  2. The Result of Submission
  3. The Real Object of Submission
  4. The Reciprocal Nature of Submission

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror. Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.
