The Elephant in the Room
A Living Hope: Week 6
For men: this is a reminder to lift up our sisters in Christ and to see them thru eyes of Jesus.
For women: God’s Word tells you that by your words and actions, you carry on the message of Jesus; you are valuable and vital in the Kingdom of God.
For all of us: it’s a call to live with purpose; to submit our lives to God; to sacrifice for one another and trust in Living Hope of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 3:1-7
Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear. Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
