Experiencing God as Couples"
1 Peter 3:1-7 

Introduction: For a couple to experience God together they must understand and live the roles and responsibilities He has given them.

A Word To Wives Concerning Husbands:

Be Submissive (1 Peter 3:1a) (Ephesians 5:22-27)

Submission is not:
--agreeing with everything your husband says
--leaving your brain or your will at the wedding altar
--believing a wife is inferior or unequal
--putting the will of your husband before the will of Christ
--getting your spiritual strength primarily through your husband
--acting out of fear toward your husband (Galatians 3:28)

Submission is:
--affirming your husband’s calling of leadership
--placing yourself under your husband’s leadership
--allowing your husband to lead (Ephesians 5:22-25)

Be Respectful
--to meet his greatest spiritual need—salvation (1 Peter 3:1b-2a)
--to meet his greatest emotional need—respect (1 Peter 3:2b) (Ephesians 5:33)

Be Beautiful
--outer beauty—secondary (1 Peter 3:3) (Proverbs 31:30)
--inner beauty—primary (1 Peter 3:4)
--“incorruptible”—lasting & pure
--“gentle spirit”—meek & humble
--“quiet spirit”—tranquil & patient 

Be Observant
--in the Scriptures (1 Peter 3:5-6a) (Hebrews 11:11)
--in life
--identifying & modeling godly examples (1 Peter 3:6b) (Titus 2:1-4)
--identifying & overcoming insecurities (1 Peter 3:6c)

A Word To Husbands Concerning Wives:

“The Bible calls men
to be something radically different
than what we find in our society today.

A man is to be tough
for his family
to provide for and protect them.  

A man is to be tender
with his family
to love and serve them.  

Any man who is only tough
will abuse his family.  

Any man who is only tender
will allow others to abuse his family.”

Be Intimate (1 Peter 3:7a—“dwell with them”) (Genesis 2:24)
Be Considerate (1 Peter 3:7b—“with understanding”)
Be Appreciative (1 Peter 3:7c—“giving honor”)
Be Sensitive & Strong (1 Peter 3:7d—“as to the weaker vessel”) 

Weaker Vessel does not imply that women are inferior morally, spiritually, or intellectual.

Weaker Vessel does imply that in general women are weaker in physical strength.  (the idea that women are more delicate)

Be Cooperative (1 Peter 3:7e—“heirs together”)
Be Aware (1 Peter 3:7f—“that your prayers may not be hindered”) 

Application: God has called couples to be on mission for Him. Much of that mission corresponds to how couples experience Him together; while creating a life that honors and serves Him.
