Thank you pester nat
Singles should pray for the marries couples to lift them up to God.
Great message!
Thank you good message.
Paul's verse is clear it is about submission. We should do so First to God then in all things we do. Marriage, partners, jobs, Children, everything. We we listen study we hear God's word clearly. One word I do not care for is a job or anything is superior. No one is superior to anyone but God. Thus in the above with open hearts trusting in God we summit to his word in every part of this beautiful like. When we summit to God it allows us to summit in all things. No it is not easy but we can not just read our Bibles we must study seek the message that is clearly there. As well turn to each other for better understanding just as Pastor Nat stated. We are all one when we realize that we will realize how Faithful God really is. I Love You Lord and to summit to you I did I Praise You and thank You Lord for The Holly Spirit of you working in us always even when we don't pay attention. Yes Lord I'm sorry we all falter it is in that faltering we become stronger in You. I Praise You for substaining us in every thing Lord. Father Thank You for Your Mercy's New each morning in Jesus name Amen.
God's Mercy's are made every new day. We may step away but He does not! When You rise in the morning asked the Lord to lift you rising as the sun rises. For The Lord once received will never leave. If You seek to be renewed, restored, refreshed God will with open arms say come for I have never left You. I do Pray The Lord will do this for you both. A marriage without God is a marriage that will suffer but in that suffering God will be with You both in Jesus name Amen
I think those of us who are married have all stepped away from God's design. By God's mercy and grace He restores us.
My husband has stepped away from what once was a Godly marriage and I don't know why, I pray for God to restore us to biblical unity every day!
I found freedom in submitting once I understood the verses surrounding the one frequently taken out of context. I give God credit for enabling me to yield and follow as I do His will.
Amen 🙏
You are welcome. It's important to dig into this because it has caused a lot of confusion.
Thank you Pastor Nat for your explanation of submission to one's spouse.
This passage is so abused due to misunderstanding and cherry-picking. It needs to be read in total As a wife of almost fifty years, I misunderstood this passage AND cherry-picked that one dreaded verse for a very long time. Because I didn’t really understand what Paul meant, I really chafed and struggled to obey its meaning. But once the Holy Spirit helped me to truly comprehend, I found it much easier to trust my husband and act as a loving partner in this relationship.
I think a lot of people misunderstood that passage. Men especially took it to control their wives in the 30s through the 60s, but then better teaching and understanding changed all that. We always need to read the whole passages and not just one's that makes us feel good!!
Truly this hits home thank you Pastor you truly gave a good message that was on my heart Amen
