As Peter moves through this section of his letter on submission, he gives special attention to the relationship of marriage. Last week, we talked about what godly submission for wives is not and what it actually is. This week, we’ll learn that husbands are also to submit to the Lord Jesus in how they view, treat and interact with their wives. In fact, husbands are commanded to love their wives just as Jesus loves His Bride--the church. Men are to care for, honor, love and serve their wives in such a way that the world would take notice of this unusual type of self-sacrificial love. It is as only as a husband loves his wife like Jesus, and as a wife submits to that loving leadership just as the church submits to Jesus, that marriage begins to paint a beautiful picture of the gospel to the world around us!
