“Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,  when they see the purity and reverence of your lives” (1 Peter 3:1-2).

In the same way.  What this means is that we need to learn how to submit.  Not just wives, but everyone.  Humble yourselves and submit to one another.  Why?  In order that we may learn how to submit to the Lord of us all.  Only in Him is there life and liberty.  Come then and live into the life to which You have been called.  Be guided by His goodness and mercy.  Know that the Lord of your souls will save you.

Lord, You know all the places where I struggle to keep control.  Guide me, dear Jesus, in the way of everlasting life in order that I may now and always be guided by You, the Savior of my soul.  Help me now and forever to look to You as the One to follow.  Help me in those times of doubt to humbly walk where You lead.  Guide me in Your goodness to know that You alone are God.

Lord Jesus, You know all that I need.  You know what is required.  Guide me, dear Lord, in the way of salvation so that I may now and forever by led by You, my Savior.  Help me to win over others through my willing submission to You.  You are my Shepherd; take me where I need to go and help me to willingly follow You on the way.  Bring purity and reverence into my life to reflect Your presence in me.  Amen.
