Colossians 3:18 ” Wives, submit to your husbands, as it is fitting in the Lord.”

To place in proper order…   Paul wasn’t teaching that women were inferior to men, quite the opposite.  In an age when women were downgraded and looked upon as mere property – Paul declared that in Christ there was no distinction in status between men and women (Gal. 3:28).  He had even called the married couple, Priscilla and Aquila,  by the same word…synergous – which meant “fellow workers.”  God is a God of order,  and by freely placing ourselves in submission in an orderly fashion under our husbands, we allow the blessings of the Lord to flow.
