The Spirit-filled Family
So, what does it mean to submit to one another? Paul shows us three pairs of relationships where a submission to authority is on display. Wives to husbands, children to parents, and slaves to masters. The amazing thing is that Paul doesn’t just write to those under authority (wives, children, and slaves); he also writes to those with the authority and how they are to relate to those God has put under it. For, if we are to see the body of Christ mature, right relationships between the two are crucial.
So, children and fathers. What does it look like to be Spirit-filled?
