“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?” – II Corinthians 6:14 NKJV
We join Pastor David Crespo today as we continue through our topical studies through the book of 1 Peter. We turn to chapter three with a message titled “Unequally Yoked?” A message in reference to the verse above, a spiritual directive that tells us that we are not to be unequally yoked together with unbelievers! Which means, as Christians we follow Christ not the world! We have relationships with unbelievers, but those relationship are not a detriment to our walk in Christ! And when it comes to marriage and being married to an unbeliever God’s word given to us by Peter teaches us how we should act and how we should live with an unbelieving spouse! Not only that, but will help us to interact right with others, and even help us to educate those with this situation! Let’s listen in!
1 Peter 3:1-7
Submission to Husbands
3 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the [a]incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
A Word to Husbands
7 Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.
