In this text, we find 12 ways that Abigail demonstrated a heart of godliness, thereby disarming an angry young king and a force of 400 men with the power of her meekness. We also see how David’s response of thankfulness models a biblical response to strong womanhood.
Marriage is an amazing institution, and it is one that God uses continually throughout the Bible as a metaphor to illustrate the power of certain relationships. Here in Romans 7, we see Paul use the idea of marriage, death, and remarriage to illustrate how our relationship to God’s law changes when we are saved. In verses 1-3, he establishes the analogy of marriage which he then applies in verses 4-6. From these verses, we see that we are either (1) Wed to the Law, and Bearing Fruit for Death, or (2) Wed to Christ, and Bearing Fruit for God.
