Canberra Workshop: He won't lead & She won't submit

In a marriage governed by biblical standards, the husband bears the responsibility to lead. But when his wife demonstrates love and respect in submitting to him, she wins the right to influence him and their family more than any other.

About the event

Paul the apostle made it absolutely clear that the husband must take the leadership in his home when he wrote to the Ephesian church. He commanded: "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything" (Eph. 5:22-24). The word head in this passage means the chief or responsible one. Paul clearly stated the principle of a husband's responsibility to lead his wife. Therefore, if you want to be a follower of Jesus; husbands, look to your Master and Teacher as the ultimate example of what true male leadership should look like.

There are some husbands who have convinced themselves they are unable to lead their wives and families. They have believed the lie of the enemy that they are unworthy and they’ll  never be a great role model to their family. This is the lie that is destroying so many families. There are also Christian husbands who are lazy and demonstrate  a passive approach towards their inability to lead. They don't feel the weight of their role and decide most of the time to do nothing. Instead they palm off their responsibility and this weighs heavily on their wives. Resentment and bitterness starts to creep into a wife’s heart and she almost struggles daily with the lack of Godly leadership from her husband.

When I married my husband.  I had strong leadership qualities that justified why I would be the better leader. My strong qualities drove me to be dominant in so many areas that it become more apparent the more I was leading the more my husband just became passive in many ways regarding our marriage and family. I was the ultimate un submissive wife. I never fully understood the principle and I always had this mindset that submissive women were weak women. However, everything changed when we faced a huge trial in our marriage,  which led me to a state of desperation to learn and understand God's design for marriage.

As wives we have been commanded and instructed to submit to our own husbands. We should not take this lightly, as it's a direct command from the Lord. I now realise the beauty of submission and it's purpose in a marriage by understanding God’s word. Those who desire to honour the Lord will know the fruit of their obedience to God. The word 'Submission' has been tainted with bad examples in the church and there is a genuine lack of understanding amongst many Christian women. As God has  renewed my mind and heart I want to encourage other wives who are struggling with submission because I did for so many years.

Our husbands need our encouragement and support because the truth is the enemy is seeking to devour many marriages in this area.  The bible says "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord." Be that good thing, be that blessing to your husband. The favour of the Lord is upon those who take obey his word. If you are a wife or a married couple who is struggling in this area this workshop is for you!

In this upcoming workshop you will learn the answers to these common questions:

  • What can I do when my husband is failing to lead?
  • How can I best support my husband and encourage his leadership?
  • What do I do if my husband has no desire to lead our family spiritually?
  • How can I honour the Lord when my husband is not walking with the Lord?
  • What do I say when people are ask why my husband doesn't come to church with me?
  • Why should I submit to my husband when he is not walking strong in the Lord?
  • Does submitting to my husband mean that I only take orders from him?
  • Isn't submission for wives an outdated principle?
  • How does my submission to my husband honour the Lord?
  • Can I correct and reproof my husband?
  • Does submitting to my husband make me seem weak?
  • How can I submit to my husband when I don't feel like it?
  • Do I submit to my husband when he is asking me to sin?

If any of these points relate to you. Come and be encouraged you are not alone. In fact there are many people in your situation. We will discuss and delve into these challenges from a biblical perspective  and you will walk away with practical steps  in how you can apply the word of God in your situation.
