I know my blog can be a little on the serious side, so every now and then I like to add things on the lighter side. Since we are fast approaching the big MARITAL SUBMISSION, I thought this would be a good time for a “little” something.
Below are some great quotes regarding submission:
The question in salvation is not whether Jesus is Lord, but whether we are submissive to His lordship.
Author: John MacArthur
Above all else, we must learn how to bring our wills into submission and obedience to the will of God, on a practical, daily, hour-by-hour basis.
Author: Jerry Bridges

In Ephesians 5 husbands are compared to Christ; wives are compared to the church. Husbands are compared to the head; wives are compared to the body. Husbands are commanded to love as Christ loves; wives are commanded to submit as the church is to submit to Christ.
Author: John Piper

The Lord commands the wife to be submissive. Refusal to submit to the husband is therefore rebellion against God Himself. Submission to the husband is a test of her love for God as well as a test of love for her husband. The wife then must look upon her submission to her husband as an act of obedience to Christ and not merely to her husband.
