Jesus is the Reason for Christmas

Image
Matthew 1:18
18This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. 19Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[c] because he will save his people from their sins."

22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"[d]—which means, "God with us."

24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him an…

"Depend on God's Word" from 2 Kings 3

Image
Water is the picture of the word of God, as we have so many trials in our life and we have to depend in God's word (drink the water to replenish our Spiritually)

Sin is a sin, and don't compare yourself to other people, the most important is your personal relationship with the Lord.

When we spend time with His word, it is like diving in to the sea looking for a precious pearl.

Be innocent of evil but be excellent of what is good.

Ephesians 5:19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,

Jeremiah 32:17 "Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.

We have to be in truth and depend on God's word. We should worship God in Spirit and truth.

"Test the Spirit Be Careful" from 1 John 4:1-11

Image
Matthew 24:4-5 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.


Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

We need to be vigilant and be careful. Don't believe in everything other people says but read the Bible, if you will not read the Bible you will be deceive.

Some religion teaches Jesus is the brother of Lucifer. Did the Bible says that?
Others believe in reincarnation - is against the Bible.

1 Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

Our learning and teachings are exclusively for Bible.
And we have to be careful in false teachings.

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory …

"Follow the Lord" from 2 Kings 2

Image
Luke 9:23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

So many times the Lord will test our sincerity and we continue to pursue our relationship with the Lord.

Our commitment to our Lord is not just for short time. We should never leave our faith.

A faith that can't be tested - Can't be trusted.

Hebrews 11:23 By faith Moses' parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king's edict.

We follow the Lord cause If loves us.
You can't imitate God if we have doubts.

"Have a True Love" from 1 John 3:11-24

Image
Love is not just a feeling but also a choice.

Sometimes jealousy and envy can overcome our flesh but a being Christian should not feel those evil desire, so even thou you have hatred - you are accountable to your body, know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We need to look at Jesus as He deals with Pharisee, we need to love people and have concerns with them, to pray for them, when you are praying then you are also loving, if you hatred then you have to confess be honest, we need to check our hearts as God knows what are in our hearts.

1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Luke 6:20 Looking at his disciples, he said:
"Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.

We are not all lovable, so don't be surprise if the world will hate you.

2 Timothy 3:12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,

The people look at me 6 days a week just to know what w…

"Be a True Child of God" from 1 John 3:1-10

Image
1 John was written by John apostle He saw and proclaim Jesus as God.
Love was mentioned 41 times in this book.

For us to be a true child of God we need to experience God's love and receive that Love. We need to receive Him as your personal Lord and Savior.

If you don't have a relationship with God them you are the son of the devil, it is so important to know why Christ love us and His love is unconditional whether you are good or bad, Jesus still loves you.

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

So many people doesn't understand that verse, that who so ever believe in Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written:
"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him"


Romans 8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn a…

"Inquire the Lord" from 1 Kings 22

Image
We need to inquire our Lord spiritually example is going through the Bible verse by verse, chapter by chapter.

To inquire the Lord we must seek His counsel. In every decision even small we must seek counsel of God, seek His word and truth. Part of enquiring is prayer and listen to His voice. Read your Bible.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.


2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Don't be mislead.
Don't listen to man but inquire the Lord always and pray you must listen to the voice of God.
We are standing for what is right, to what the Bible says.

The fruit of the spirit is Love. We need to have Love in telling someone else false opinions.
So important to …

"Stay Connected With Jesus" from 1 John 3

Image
Electronic devices needs electricity, and be connected in to the plug in order to function.

And so, we also need to be connected to Jesus in order to persevere.

We need to abide in fellowship for the preparation of the coming of Christ.
Hebrews 1:2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

Who is the anti-Christ?

The antiChrist are those who deny Jesus and opposed the teachings of Jesus Christ.

1 John 4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Trinity - God the father, God the son and Holy Spirit.
There are many religion who are sincere but what they believe and doctrine are wrong. You have to be in the truth.

To abide in Christ.
Hebrews 2:1 We must pay …

"Do not covet" from 1 Kings 21

Image
Even a little child can commit covetousness if we don't discipline them.

Exodus 20:17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
James 1:14 but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.

If we are materially minded we always want just a little more.

The sin of covetousness sometimes may be looked small because it is the 10th commandment but out of covetousness comes many sins. Covetousness will happen to everybody if we are not on guard.

Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness is not enough to convict a man accused of any crime or offense he may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

If we humble ourselves and repent God will revive us the grace we need as He is a merciful God, no matter how far we are, if we turned back from our sins God will forgive.

"Received His Encouragement and Warning" from 1 John 2:12

Image
Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

The more you spend time with Jesus the more you will be like Him. You have known the Father - know more about Jesus.

John 14:7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him."

We need to be reminded about the word of God because the enemy will put evil thoughts in us all the time, even the family members will tell you not to go to church. If sinners entice you - do not go with them.

How can you over come the wicked one?

Is to spend time with God's words.

Is is not important to memorize but the most important is to over come the evil one and put God's words in our hearts.

How can a man or woman remain pure?

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

The thing that you spend the most is the thing that occupies your heart.

Set your mind on things above …

"Do Not Boast" from 1 Kings 20

Image
Some of us knows the story of Titanic:
The RMS Titanic was an Olympic-class passenger liner owned by British shipping company White Star Line and built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland. At the time of her construction, she was the largest passenger steamship in the world.
source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Titanic
Everybody who invented the ship was boasting that they stated "Not even God can ever submerge the ship".
Shortly before midnight on 14 April 1912, four days into the ship's maiden voyage, Titanic hit an iceberg and sank two hours and forty minutes later, early on 15 April 1912. The sinking resulted in the deaths of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.

but many advisers make victory sure.

"Embrace the Truth" from 1 John 2:1-11

Image
Theme of this Book are: God is light, God is love and God is life.

And, to remind us that Jesus is coming back, Jesus save us.

To continue our relationship with Jesus we must obey His words and embrace the truth.

We may have lots of excuses sometimes to sin, but Jesus said you should be perfect but nobody is perfect except God. And, if we do sin let in our defense be Jesus Christ - the righteous One. When Jesus defend us He will never lost the fight by defending us by His own blood. So in order for us to continue to be saved by Jesus we must continue to obey the truth.

Titus 2:11-14
11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 12It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a peopl…

"Listen to His still Small voice" from 1 Kings 19

Ahab - king of Israel his wicked wife Jezebel in which he is afraid.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Another name for Horeb - Mt. Sinai

Luke 9:61-62
61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family."
62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

Even he we fail from discouragement Jesus will still use us

Have True Fellowship with God from 1 John 1

Image
It was 41 times "love" was mentioned in this book.
The purpose ofare this book:

Joy will be complete.
That you will not sin.
You may have eternal life.
Warns us about false teachings.

John wrote 5 books: John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and Revelation.

As Christians; we must have fellowship with Jesus Christ. Jesus was not only a spirit but a living God. God has no beginning and no end, He is the alpha and omega.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.


We all exist in order to have fellowship with God.

Ephesians 3:6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.

We are all one in Christ.
Share your hope with Jesus Christ.

John 16:24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.


John 15:11 I have told you this so that my joy may be i…

The Lord is our Savior from 1 Kings 18

Elijah - Whose God is Jehovah

Behind the scene ministry - those who are not seen but very important. Example are Prayer warriors.

God will use you rightly.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

It is so important for us parents to teach our children with the word of God. We need to be a good example to them in reading the Bible.

Hebrews 6:12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

God is not unjust..

Matthew 10:32 "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.

Some people blaming God when things go bad. Jesus said "in this world we will have many troubles". But we should not be shaken. We should remember to call the name of the Lord and never doubt.

Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these s…

"Grow Up" from 2 Peter 3

Image
When we attend the pastor and servant conference there were many strong believers that serve for more than 10 years but still they make effort and willing to learn.
The story of merciful servant who didn't anticipate for the coming of Christ. To be blameless and spotless. The first thing you need to do in order to experience peace is to receive the grace of God. Ephesians 2:8-9
We worship God for who He is and continue to receive His grace. Be strong with the grace of God. We need to be always be reminded with His grace.
Sotaira salvation patience.
Paul war apostle for the gentile. All disciples are believers but not all believers are disciples. God is not just interesting. It is not we need to worship God to be blessed, You worship God cause you are blessed.
Remember that the other purpose of this book is to warn us about false teachings.

Romans 5:20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21so that, just as sin re…

"Be Reminded" from 2 Peter 3:1-13

Image
As Christian Jesus told us to watch out in the day of His coming, and so, we must work out for our salvation.

As for some Christians they don't want repeated teachings. But the important thing is we are reminded. Paul remind us we need to be strong in His grace. It's not just you hear new teachings the true meaning is when you apply His words. If you know not then do not apply. For all of us no matter how you know God's words we are not here to learn - but to know how to please God. Be sincere, write and put His words in our hearts.

For example, whenever you have fight with your spouse remember your wedding day how you two have been so sweet. To recall the good times is to forget the bad times.

1 Peter 1:12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.

The words and comm…

"Walk in His Ways" from 1 Kings 16

Image
In this chapter 1 Kings 16, all the bad kings of Israel are mentioned.

Baasha = means bad or wicked.

For us in order to walk in His ways we must listen to His words in the Bible. There were many warnings in the Bible but we don't want to listen. And in return, we will just reap what we sow.

Elah = means strong.

You fail, I fail, we all fail, but do you still want to continue the negative things you did and continue it on to the next chapter?
This is NOT just for unbelievers but for all of us believers Christians.

For example, when the world want to escape the problems of life - people get drunk. Drunkenness has killed more man, than being killed at the war. In our life today there are many areas to check: these are our heart, jealousy, anger, covetousness and gossip...

Another thing is according to facts, over 19 million of sex magazines are being sold because many people want lust - it's the reality of the worldly things today. Pornography has the biggest catch in the businesses t…

"Walk in the Truth" from 2 Peter 2

Image
Walk in Truth from 2 Peter 2

Today, there are so many business (that people don't know are sinful earnings) in order to earn money like piracy.
Peter told us about false teachers and teachings. As Christians we need to walk in the truth. The purpose of this book is to assure us and let us know Jesus will come back.
How to know the false teachings and are only cult?
If the preacher always talks about money and physical blessings that is one sign.

1 Timoty 6:5 and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.


Don't worry stay on tract and stick with Jesus. We are not fighting against flesh and blood but spiritual war.
In today's society we welcome homosexuality and all other who follow corrupt desire and sinful nature. But God will surely rescue the righteous man, just as like Lot was rescued in Sodom and Gomorrah.

"Be Fully Committed" from 1 Kings 15

Image
Be fully Committed from 1 Kings 15

Have you heard the of the humanist teachings?
They don't have any right nor wrong. As long as you don't hurt anybody that's fine. And if you steal other people goods is fine as long as you help other people.

For us Christians we follow what's right and wrong. Dedicated and loyal to God.

We should not tolerate our children to do minor sins, always correct them and be firm in discipline.
Do what is right in the eyes of the Lord and NOT in the eyes of man.


Matthew 10:25 It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!

Love God first forget about family and friends.

Every time we commit a sin and even if we ask for forgiveness there will always be consequences in our actions. Be careful to use your living body as sacrifice not to compromise our faith.

The number 1 sin in our daily life is gossip and lie - all forms o…

"Remember" from 2 Peter 1:12-25

Image
The purpose of this book is to be aware of false teachings.

For us, Christians we learn a lot from His words but we forget and so we need to be reminded -to remember His Love. The first thing we receive from God is our salvation. In every teachings we should learn the basic.

We use the meaning of the word but we often forgot.

Its not how much you come but how it came to you as you absorb it from the heart. Remember the basic of Love. To put it in your mind and maintain the basic, though we have advance learning never forget the basic.

We need to be refresh and stir up our memory. The word of God is like water that refreshes the soul. To be absent to the body is to be present to the Lord.

John 21:18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."

Every word we need to take it by heart. We need to be reminded of that…

"Be Change" from 1 Kings 14

Image
Many books can inform us but only the Bible can transform us.

Many Christians sometimes pretend to be someone else but everything is uncovered to the eyes of God. He wants us to change from inside out.

Think about when we're eating we need to chew the food very well to absorb the vitamins and minerals in the food.

Psalm 119:9-11
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.

10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.

11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 32:1 Blessed is he
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.

If we want to be productive - we need to have the fruit of the spirit. We need to set to the goodness of God. Sometimes God remind us to the Christians songs we hear, be transform for God.

Deuteronomy 23:3 No Ammonite or Moabite or any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, even down to the tenth generation.

"Know Jesus Better" from 2 Peter 1:1-11

Image
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

The reason why Jesus has not yet come because He was waiting for you to repent.

Peter -(Simon) means solid rock
Peter is not only a servant but also an apostle.

Some people would think that serving God can save you. God doesn't show favoritism. If we don't receive grace and peace then we are not saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.

1 Thessalonian 4:7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.

God want us to finish the race, and one barriers for us to finish is "sin".
Avoid foolishness (specially listening to songs), if you want Jesus, better developed a Godly character.

Philippians 4:12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have ple…

"Listen to God's Voice" from 1 Kings 13

Image
Listen to the voice of the Lord from 1 Kings 13
God's word is for you and me. For us to hear God's word we need to allow God to change us. We need to allow God to change our heart. Remember that:

Jeremiah 11:12 The towns of Judah and the people of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they will not help them at all when disaster strikes.

Even in the small voice God speaks to our heart we must listen to it.

Colossians 3:9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices

The church before are much pure because they don't compromise.

To know if God's voice is speaking to us the words are consistent with the Bible's teachings.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

If we don't listen to the word of God, the enemy will come by to devour us. And so, God's word will always rem…

"Be Truly Humble" from 1 Peter 5

Image
Many people are doing good things but their heart has a different motives.

Now, God put an authority to the church elders but He wants us all to be humble. As we are all equal in the glory of God. 1 John 3:2

Acts 20:28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.


Our relationship with God as like the shepherd to "feed the sheep" as in "them" (the world) with God's word and we're not only looking in ourselves but also to other people. This is NOT for us to "supposed to do" but we want to do it as our motivation is humbling ourselves.

We must have a shepherd heart to do the shepherd job.

John 10:11 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

Ephesians 5:21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Remember God opposes the proud but gives grace to the Humble.

Cast all your anxiety on him becaus…

"Listen to a Good Advice" from 1 Kings 12

Image
Listen to a Good Advice...
Solomon = means peaceful
When Solomon asks for wisdom - God gave it to him, and even more... but he compromise until he was deceive by his possession and wives to honor other gods.
And as we can see, even the wisest man can fall down. If he went out from the counsel of God.
How much more are we? We're not as wise as Solomon and if we don't follow every God's commandments - what will come to us?

If you don't know how to solve your own problems he must go to mature person not only in knowledge but also in spirit. We all need to listen to mature Christians. And, be a servant of Jesus. If you want to be first be the servant of all.

Proverbs 10:14 Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.


Proverbs 19:20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.

Don't be deceived. Be faithful and be humble. Worship God in spirit and faith.

"Have an Undivided Heart" from 1 Kings 11

Image
Do you want to get married someday?

But if there's someone who has another lover would you want that person?

Jesus wants us to love only one and we can't serve two masters. Mr. Wisdom (Solomon) fail in this area. Solomon loved so many women from different nations, foreign wives. In which God warns him not to intermarry with. The Lord knows Solomon specially his witnesses. The word for today we should not be unequally yoke.

God knows our plans.

For us we need to continue to depend to God.

1 Corinthians 15:23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

Solomon had the total of 1000 (wives and concubines) which lead him astray. We need to be careful with our God.

Whenever you feel cold in our relationship with God asks and pray to let God help you.

The Lord doesn't care how many times you go to church but God looks at your heart.

Solomon commit the same mistake as his father did but David recognizes his sin and repented.

Solomon did…

"Live to Please God" from 1 Peter 4:1-11

Image
How can we please the Lord?
To adore Him, obey His words, have fellowship. Let's find out what pleases God.
People may not like us to put on our new self. It is hard to suffer and hard to give up our sin.
1 Thessalonian 4:3-5 It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God;

If we don't have relationship to God, what are our desire?
To have merry life?
Materialistic wants?
We need to go back to the basic to please God. Live as wise not as animals. Live as children of God.
Galatians 3:29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.


John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

"Continue to Suffer" from 1 Peter 3:13

Image
We always have persecution in our family and friends though we don't like it and yet the Lord wants us to learn.

In 1st Peter the Christians were under the rule of Romans.

Even in the world today we are in suffering. Even though everybody are not believers, even Jesus, all of us suffer to do what is good.


Romans 8:22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.


Luke 6:22-28
22 Blessed are you when men hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.

23 "Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.
24 "But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you,

"Be Honest to the Lord" from 1 Kings 9

It was 12.5 years - Solomon built the temple for the Lord.

God hears the prayers of the righteous person so be honest to the Lord
1 Corinthians 10:12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!

Be careful with relationship with others specially with none believers.

Trust in the Lord...
1 Kings 8:56 "Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.


Deuteronomy 7:1-3 When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations—the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you- and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their…

"Follow God's Order" from 1 Peter 3:1-12

Image
"Obey before we complain, do it and follow God's order."

Before I can remember... I always complain before I obey, but as the word of God above and from the concept of 1 Peter we must obey before we complain.

For wife -must be submissive to the husband.

Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Being submissive = cooperate entirely and volountarily

A change life speaks loudly and clearly. Be a good sample of Christian.
