Submission and Authority: God's Desired Order

Hey Covenant Groupies,

Got a quick one for you today.

1 Corinthians 11:3 says, "But there is one thing I want you to know: a man is responsible to Christ, a woman is reponsible to her husband and Christ is responsible to God.

In other words:

God the Father is the authority of God the Son,
Who is the authority of the husband,
Who is the authority of his wife,
Who, in cooperation with him, is the joint authority of the children,
And the Holy Spirit cements all of these relationships together as the family submits to God's Word.

Ok, this is what the Word says, plain and simple, but let's keep it real ya'll, how many of us are still struggling with words like submission, responsible, head, authority?
