The Secret of Submission

August 23, 2019 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

If we are going to survive in the tough times of our lives, we must learn to submit. Wait. What? That’s right. Now, I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but let me explain.

The Word of God teaches us that no person is inferior to anyone else. We are all one in Jesus Christ. Submission is something we do to one another “in the fear of God” (Ephesians 5:21). Through submission comes power and victory.

Do you want to know a good definition of submission? Here it is: Submission is one equal willingly placing himself under another equal that God may therefore be glorified.

ACTION POINT:

We are never more like Jesus than when we submit. And never more like the devil than when we rebel.
