Wives and Husbands

Colossians Bible Background

10.11.2018 – New Testament: Col 3.18–19

To read the Bible in a year, read Colossians 3 on October 11, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

With few words Paul instructed husbands and wives with the words of the Spirit, that, when practiced, brings great peace to a marriage:

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them (Colossians 3.18–19).

The Lord wants wives to submit to their own husbands and not to another woman’s husband. She should submit to her husband as is fitting in the Lord. She is not so subjected to her husband that she can follow him into sin, nor can he ask her to sin.

Husbands should love their wives and not be tempted to be bitter against them, since she may not be as when he married her, but he should remain content with her.
