b. Salvific Conduct vv. 1b-2
2. The Character Of A Godly Wife vv. 3-4
a. What character excludes v. 3
the adornment of the Christian woman should be in keeping with what she is as a Christian. She should not be a Christian at heart and her adornment be that of a person of the world.
b. What character includes v. 4
The chief adornment of the Christian should be the Lord Jesus, manifested in and through the life of the believer.
3. The Consideration Of A Godly Wife vv. 5-6
a. Consider the attitude of godly women v. 5
Quiet confidence in God produces in a woman the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, but it also enables her to submit to her husband’s authority without fear that it will ultimately be harmful to her well-being or her personhood.
