Our culture and the world in general defines "submission" this way: "the action or fact of accepting or yielding to a superior force orto the will or authority of another person: they were forced into submission."
What then does "submission" mean in a marriage relationship? Is that an archaic term? Was it okay two thousand years ago but has no validity in our marriages today? This is a tough one and we are going to hit it head on this month. Our focus for July is "Submission" and a member of our Awesome Marriage Global Management Team, Jennifer Zabel, will be leading us.
Jennifer resides in Edmond, Oklahoma with her beloved husband, Mason, their three daughters Ella, Claire, and Hays, and their lab Goodie. Besides her most coveted title of wife and mother, Jennifer has previously held the titles of Registered Nurse, Miss Oklahoma 2005, and Lash Stylist for her company The Lash Lounge, LLC. Jennifer and her family attend Life Church.
Join us each week as Jennifer explores the meaning of submission in Ephesians 5. She will talk about her struggles with defining submission in her marriage and tackle tough issues such as finance and sex.
This week give us your take on Biblical submission. We want to hear from you.
