THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 4 Page
** What example does Paul give of this principle?
** Does a willingness to submit on the part of the wife to a God ordained headship imply she is inferior?
** Does Jesus Christ use His position of authority over His church to get His way or to oppressively rule the church?
V.24 ** So we have seen both the MANNER (as to the Lord) and the REASON (God has ordained a man to be the head of his wife) for the Holy Spirit filled wife to be submissive. What pattern is she given to follow?
** How extensively is the church to submit to Christ?
** Then how about the wife, how extensively is she to submit to her own husband?
V.25 ** Now that all Christian wives have a submissive attitude in their reverence for their husband - the problems must all be solved and Paul has no need to address the Christian husband, right?
