“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.” 1 Peter 3:1-2

Marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. Marriage is not to be entered into lightly. Marriage is a spiritual commitment as much as it is an emotional and physical commitment. God intended for marriage to be a blessing to the couple, a sense of completion (e.g. Two halves that make a whole), a source of strength and encouragement.

The Apostle Peter reminds the reader that a wife needs to be submissive to her “own” husband. The husband is NOT the Lord of the manor, but rather is to love his wife “as Christ loves the church.” If he does this his wife will have no problem wanting to please her husband. In the verse the Apostle makes it clear that the wife is to try and please her “own” husband. It is important that you realize you are not trying to make yourself attractive to all men, but attractive to your husband. Your desire should be for “your” husband, not the husband of someone else.

The aged Apostle also knew that some women who had accepted Christ were married to non-believers. His advice was to live a life well pleasing to the Lord as a witness for your husband. When he sees your godly manner of life he will be drawn to the Lord. A godly marriage is truly a blessing from the Lord.
