Additional Sermon Content

Sarah submits to the questionable wisdom of her husband in an unjust and frightening situation in a foreign land/hostile environment— exactly the kind of situation the church is in today as exiles.

Karen Jobes, Biblical Scholar

I believe in a wife submitting to her husband, but I don’t believe the husband ever has the right to demand it. In fact, I know that when I am worthy of submission, my wife submits; and when I am unworthy of it she does not…My responsibility as a husband is to be worthy.

Scot McKnight, Biblical Scholar

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Galatians 5:22-23a
