Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is upon us, and my family couldn’t be happier. We are planning on visiting a pumpkin patch and going on a hay ride. Yay for fall!
Today I would love to share a message by Voddie Baucham about Womanhood. It is found in youtube, but it is audio, not video. If you have the spare time, I would highly recommend this message. I normally listen to these messages early in the morning, during my baby’s nap time or in the car.
At the beginning, Voddie speaks briefly about Sunday School and Youth Groups. He has some amazing points. The rest of the message is spot on. He concludes by comparing the roles of Condoleezza Rice and President Bush to wives and husbands. Why are women who work for their employers applauded, while women who do the same for the husbands are sometimes ridiculed?
The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
I still have so much to learn when it comes to biblical womanhood. Dr. Baucham touches on the fact from Genesis, that it is not in our nature to be obedient to our husbands. We ladies want to take the lead, and would rather the men be obedient to us!
Then he said to the woman, “I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth. And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.”
Genesis 3:16 (NLT)
Though our desire is to control our husbands, in Titus 2 we are clearly commanded to be obedient to them. This is a daily struggle for me, which by God’s grace I’m slowly overcoming.
Does anyone have good Titus 2 advice to give? Please feel free to share!
