“FROM BONDAGE TO SUBMISSION!”

Ephesians 5:21-25, 6:1, 5, 9,

Psalm 79:9, “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Thy name’s sake.”

Our relationship between husband and wife is that the wife is to submit to the husband and the husband is commanded to love his wife as Christ loved the church. However, it is also submitting one to the other.

Today we are going to learn one of the most important lesson or our life. Whether husband and wife, boss and employee, pastor and people, etc.

There are basically four principles to help us to overcome a rebellious spirit or a rebellious heart. Someone called it “active rebellion.”

I call it “active submission” to cure “active rebellion.” Active submission not only between the husband and wife, but also to God and to one-another.

  1. ACTIVE SUBMISSION WILL ALWAYS SEEK TO MAKE THE OTHER A SUCCESS.

How do you do that? Glorify the Saviour in your life is a great start. You will not hold a good job without a submissive spirit. That means not just willing to do the menial task, but actually doing it without being asked.

Jesus said, in Luke 22:27, “For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth” Is not he that sitteth at meat? But I am among you as He that serveth.”

The greatest jobs are behind the scenes in the shadows. Read 1 Corinthians 12:27-31!

CONTINUED TOMORROW!
