I have been married for 14 years come November 27th of this year. I love my wife and I love my marriage. However, it has not always been “smooth sailing.” In other words, it has not always been easy. Marriage is work! It will only work if the two individuals put in work. I must say that my wife and I each give 100 percent plus to ensure that our marriage is successful. It may sound like a lot but its actually not. Along with our Christian faith, we discovered a technique that makes being married easy. This technique is nothing new. It has actually always been available. It is called “submission.” You see, in order for a marriage to be successful, both people have to be willing to submit to one another in the fear of God (Ephesians 5:21). It is not just one person submitting, but both. Well what is submission? Submission is not just doing for one another. It is actually doing for one another what you really don’t want to but… you do it because it is the right thing to do. The bible teaches us many things. One of the most profound things that it teaches is the power of submission. If we submit first to God, then to our marriage, and even to certain situations, we will find out that not only will our marriage become better, but life in general will become better. Don’t get me wrong. Submission is not an easy thing to do. However, it is attainable. Start today and make submission in your marriage your will. Decide that you are going to submit. After all, what do you have to lose, besides your marriage… Selah.
