What is the purpose of a Wife?
Wives are called to steer husbands to the Lord.
As a women in Christ, you are set in the family to serve your husband. Ephesisans 5 verse 22 to 25 explains that wives should submit to their husbands.
Now in many households, the lady is the spiritually sensitive one, and often has a husband who is either not saved or is cold to the word of God. What are you supposed to do in this case.
The husband is set as head. The wife serves the husband and supports the husband. The wife is set below the husband. In my knowledge of the human body and the body of Christ, this would make the women of the house the "neck".
The neck supports the head but also is the mechanism that turns and points the head. The head can not turn, move or function without the neck. The neck is the main steering mechanism of the body. Wives, your function is that of steering and guiding you husband and family into the correct path. Without your support and guidance and gentle steering, your household can not move forward. It is you that steers and indirectly leads your husband to good or bad.
In the majority of new couples that come to churches, it is predominantly the wife that has led the husband to attending church. Gentle persuasion, gentle persistence, and finally the head sees what the neck is pointing it towards. Once attending church, often the husband gets the picture and then takes the lead into spiritual fullness. There are cases where the husband does not accept the Christian lifestyle, but with patience and wisdom and prayer, the husband will eventually come to accept the Lord as saviour.
Ladies, it is not always easy to submit to ungodly husbands, but remember that God never told you that it would be easy. He told you to be patient, loving and kind, to pray and to trust Him, and then He will give you the desires of your heart.
Serve your husbands well, that they may be won over to the Lord through your Godly ways.
