Let Us Grow In Submission

on December 14, 2012

submissionLet Us Grow In Submission

      Submission is yielding to the power, control, or authority of another. It is also obedience and humbleness.

Ephesians 5:20-21  NKJV    “giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.”

      God has ordained that there should be people in authority that govern over different areas in our lives. Every person (the believer and the nonbeliever) is subject to some type of authority. Obeying those that God has placed over us (leaders) is a type of submission to God.

1 Peter 2:13-14  NKJV    “Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.”

      Leaders will give an account for how they carried out their duties as a leader.

Hebrews 13:17  NKJV    “Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.”
