Bible Study on Man Being the Head of the House


Nowadays, many Christian wives like to take in charge and practice authorities over their husbands. Man is the head of the house and his wife should submit to him by doing what he say. This is just like Jesus Christ is the head of the church. The church is the bride of Jesus Christ and she must do what Jesus Christ said. Before you do anything, you should discuss with your husband to respect him as the head of the house. If you husband did not give you permission, you should not do it. Husbands should be considerate by taking into account the needs of their wives.

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. (Ephesians 5:23 KJV)

Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve.And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. (1 Timothy 2:11-15 KJV)

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (Ephesians 5:22 KJV)

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it. (Ephesians 5:25 KJV)

Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. (1 Timothy 3:12 KJV)

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives. (1 Peter 3:1 KJV)

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) (1 Timothy 3:4-5 KJV)
