A manner of life (3:1-12). In Ephesians 5, Paul mentioned the importance of a submitting attitude. While the male and the female have their respective roles in the family, the attitude of humility and godly reverence makes all the difference in the nurturing of the family relationship. This kind of spirit allows our prayers to be unhindered.
A manner of life – 2 (3:13-22). Sanctifying the Lord Jesus within allows us to endure far more than we think we can. People will be impressed by our endurance and, perhaps, they will inquire further. When that opportunity prevents itself, then we can give the reason for the hope that lies within. As Peter said previously, he says again: our great example is the Lord himself.
