The Christian Wife

How to be a Christian Wife:

  • You must accept the authority of your husband (be submissive
  • Preach without words by living a godly life
  • Pure, Reverent (respectful, devout) life

The Bible says, “In the same way, you wives *must accept the authority of your husbands*. Then, even if some refuse to obey the Good News, *your godly lives* will speak to them *without any words*. They will be won over by observing *your pure and reverent lives*.” (1 Peter 3:1-2 NLT)

There’s more, Christian wives are not to be concerned about:

  • outward beauty (elaborate-fancy hairstyles)
  • not concerned about expensive jewelry
  • not concerned about wearing fine clothes
  • Have a gentle and quiet spirit

The Bible says, “Don’t be *concerned* about the *outward beauty* of *fancy hairstyles*, *expensive jewelry*, or *beautiful clothes*. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a *gentle and quiet spirit*, which is so precious to God.” (1 Peter 3:3-4 NLT)

How did the holy women of the Old Testament make themselves beautiful? They trusted in God and accepted the authority of their own husbands. The Bible goes on to say, “This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They put their trust in God and accepted the authority of their husbands.” (1 Peter 3:5 NLT)
