SUBMISSION IN RELATIONSHIPS: EXPECTATIONS VS REALITY

Hey friends!!!

This topic is very strange to talk about at this point but let’s just face reality, we human beings need to sit down and deliberate on this matter.

Some people misunderstand the term “submission”. I wanted to check the meaning of submission but the dictionary gives the term a logical explanation. I am not a relationship expert but i think i am just going to give my own idea from the biblical prespective.

Ephesians 5: 22, 25

22 For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:22. Here, paul was advising us wives, husbands, fiance submit to your husband as to the lord. It’s a common thing they tell us to do as wives. Here, submission means giving your all.

25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her
Ephesians 5:25. Here, paul said husbands, boyfriends, fiancee love your wives, girlfriends, fiance as christ loves the church.

At this point i need to explain both verses together, The church of God is the woman, girlfriend, fiance in the supernatural sense. What did christ do with the church?. He laid down his life for the church. I’m sure you might think, “how can i sacrifice myself for him or her?”.

How did christ sacrifice for the church?

Even though we do wrong, he still loves us. Sometimes, we human beings are always hateful, stab your neighbor in the back, criticize people and their personality, say things that are not right. Then you go back and ask God for forgiveness, he forgives you, accepts you and still loves you the same no matter what. But, if your significant other says or does something wrong, you get angry or maltreat him or her after that person has sacrificed everything for you and your wellbeing. Then afterall, you would say he or she does not respect you.

Did you stop to think or ask, “what is wrong, you don’t seem happy?”. This question is for both parties. We need to settle this right here and now.

To have a happy life and future in a relationship:

1. Ask yourself if you would be happy with him or her. This is an important thing to do. Assess his or her character. If you are compatible.

2. You must marry your friend. How would you know? Your friend is the following:

Someone who can move heaven and earth for you. Does the person care about your emotional, physical, spiritual, financial state of mind?.

Does the person make you happy or sad?.

3. One other thing, Do you respect each other in terms of values and principles?.

The issue of roles goes both ways. There is nothing wrong in a man cooking for his wife. Tradition has twisted our minds into thinking that it’s wrong for a man to be cooking or doing house chores or taking care of the children. There is nothing wrong. We are all equal. Nothing stops a man from spoiling his wife. Nothing stops a woman from spoiling her husband.

Learn to say sorry. Don’t let your ego ruin something good.

Say nice words!. It can reduce the stress or unhappiness in your significant other.

Learn to be appreciative. Say thank you. It goes a long way.
