Are You Fit to be Tied? (1491)
Are you fit to be tied? In other words, are you worthy to be called a husband or wife?

Look at the example of Abraham and Sarah in the book of Genesis. They had their problems. There was an affair, a struggle with infertility, and problems amongst the children they eventually had in their old age.

Yet, they survived it all. They made it to the very end.

Many couples today face the struggles that Abraham and Sarah faced. The difference is not in the problems, but in their commitment. It is not love that holds your marriage together, it is your marriage that holds your love together.

In 1 Peter 3, principles for a godly marriage are clearly outlined, so that husbands and wives may learn to be fit to be tied together. God says that the husband is the head of the home. Therefore, a godly woman is to submit to her husband. Submission is necessary for leadership, and leadership is necessary for success in life.

When Jesus was on earth, He submitted to God the Father, not because He was inferior. It was an example of love and obedience.

When a woman submits to her husband, she’s not inferior to her husband any more than God the Son is inferior to God the Father. In fact, it is a sign of strength, control and serenity.

As Adrian Rogers says, “(Women) are never more like Jesus than when she is in submission.” Women are to show the presence of Jesus in her through her speech and submission to her husband.

As for the husband, he is to possess knowledge. The problem with most husbands is an overload of ignorance due to a lack of listening, or a lack of caring.

But husbands are to love their wives with awareness, acceptance, adjustment, and appreciation. They are to pray for their wives, to listen with their ears and their hearts, adjust to the needs of the family and praise their wives any opportunity they can get.

This what God’s word says, and what makes us fit to be tied.

Apply it to your life
Husbands and wives live in a world that wants to tear them down. Everybody is trying to get to the top. Everything around us pulls us down. Husbands and wives need somebody to lift them up. Honor your mate today. Love them well.
