Make a Disciple

Roles and relationships do not negate each other, which makes the wife coequal with her husband, which is essential when it comes to a proper worldview of discipleship.

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. — Matthew 18:15

If he is not your brother, meaning he is not a believer, he needs your evangelistic care. Either way, he needs you speaking into his life because sin is not “uninterested” in him.

Leading From Behind

The first thing you will have to come to terms with is your responsibility to disciple him. Because you are subordinate to him, you will have to lead him from behind.

Nine Ways To Disciple Him

Get a Burden — (Galatians 6:1) You have a “caught husband.” What I mean is that he is not entirely sanctified. The Bible does not teach sinless perfection, which means your husband has sin struggles like you and me.
