Ep 113 – Passive Husband, Passive Wife

Oxford dictionary defines passive as “accepting or allowing what happens or what others do without active response or resistance.”

Is this your life?
Is this your marriage?

Why do we have a culture where this is so prevalent in marriages and why is silently destroying so many?

“Every man needs a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.”

John Eldredge, Wild at Heart

This is playing out in culture for so many by replacing these God given longings within us with numbing tactics and checking out on both sides of the marriage.

Jesus was not passive and He doesn’t call us to be either!

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. let all that you do be done in love.

1st Corinthians 16:13-14

As a man, you need to balance being “a servant and a savage, a lion and a lamb.” You need to provide, protect, and preside. Is that what you are doing? If not, it’s time to STEP up in your home!

As a woman, you need to release control and be willing to have the hard conversations needed to help your man see who God has called him to be. Is that what you are doing? If not, STOP trying to play every role in your home!

God has a design for marriage…YOUR marriage. It’s time to step into that and learn what He is calling each of your to do. We challenge you to got to Ephesians 6 and memorize it. Learn about the armor of God and then PUT IT ON!
