If you would turn within your Bibles to Hebrews chapter 12. He rejected 12 this morning will be looking at verses seven through nine Samiti assuming to husbands is difficult work women have Christian wives have a challenge before them. They are called to submit to sinners you submit to a man who is going to disappoint you is going to fail you. You know he's going to let you down is going to send against you may and will make you angry and sometimes he will worship as you might tell herself and would probably be tempted to do this say no. If I a perfect has I can submit lo and behold Christian women in a manner speaking you do have a perfect husband all of us levers are part of the bride of Christ. And so we have someone perfect to submit to and none of us do that. What but the truth remains that the wife is most happy when she is submitting to her husband. She is blessed of God because she sent free of the concerns that properly belong to her husband so he can worry about those issues free from having to worry about that was all she us just pray for him in those areas. She is free to excel in her areas of giftedness the way that God was he got his created her and she can become the woman that God wants her to be instead of like the world tells you to try to be just like 1 million she's actually set free from the foolishness into the person the woman of God that the father wants her to be when she is submit your husband think about the perfect picture of that in Scripture is excellent wife in Proverbs 31 and is you look at that see such a beautiful picture of a wife who is not only doing all these amazing things in on are you ladies you look at that Akamai this is a high standard, but one of the things that sometimes his ministers that she is indeed submitted to her husband. If you pay attention as you read through this me that she does him good. She serves as she's focused on his she also is focused on seem to it that he is respected in the community. She works so that he is the one who who gets respect because he has such a godly why that can she bring herself to submit to a man who is a fellow center is that women do you might read that you think necessary will were told at the end of chapter how she does. She is first submitted to God, Scripture says she is a woman who fears Yahweh and points out that that is her greatest he fears you what a beautiful picture perfect picture for all of us as we learn to submit to Yahweh and we haven't they are flushed out in this example of a woman who is submitted to her husband because she submitted to Yahweh and in her life. It is is so amazing because by being submitted to first God enter her husband. She's set free to become the woman that God's design for the and so she's a fitting picture for all of us male and female as we try to submit to God you think about these are for us to submit to God sometimes went even though he is perfect. And yet he leads us through very dark valleys and some of the paths and he takes us on as a don't make sense to us. And we're scratching our heads were Lord which you can answer any planning anything in this why is this happening is so it can be harder for us it the truth remains that we truly live when we submit to whatever path that a father, Texas. That's what when we walked in his arms happily surrender he is working like us to look in real a bit more for context started verse three Hebrews chapter 12 and worry from three through 11 writer says, pointing us to Jesus & verse two that we should fix our eyes on Jesus, he says consider him who has endured such hostility by sinners against himself so that you may not grow weary and lose heart you not resistant to the point of shedding blood in your striving against and you forgot in the agitation which is addressed to you as son's my son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by him for those whom the Lord loves he discipline any scourges every son, whom he receives it is for discipline that you endure God deals with you. As with sons for what son is there and his father does not discipline you are without discipline, of which only become partakers and you are illegitimate children and not son's. Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us and we respected them shall we not much rather be subject to the father spirits and we fully they disciplined us for a short time has seemed best to them that he or heavenly father disciplines us for our good that we may share is all discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful is so awful to those who have been trained by afterwords yields peaceful fruit of righteousness and whenever a teacher of the Bible expositors are explains the text of Scripture one of things that they should do if they are actually doing an exposition is to show how the passage applies to us or at least you to give us some guidance it we do with this because all Scripture is profitable for us it is practical for us to use in and so Bible teacher should do that and that's exactly we find here the author quoted from Proverbs 3 verses 1112. Quotation seen verses five and six, and then verse seven and following what he does he gives us an exposition is what I'm doing right now he's he's doing that for us and sonics positing his exposition son but hopefully I do him justice. But he's trying to help us in this overall passages you. We back up to verse one is exhorting us to endure in this race of faith to run with endurance and so he keeps talking about bringing up endurance and we find it here again in verse seven and following is talking about endurance it because it's a hard race. It's a lifelong race we don't easy until we die. And we go to meet with him with our Lord
