Weekday devotionals for Christians

In A Submission Hold

Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
Eph 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

Eph 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 

One of the keys to every relationships for everyone is the biblical philosophy of submitting.  No one likes talking about it, but it is a vital need in every relationship.  The Lord Jesus started this Biblical mandate of submitting by dying on the cross.  He didn’t want to die that way but He did.  The question is, “will you follow the Lord’s example of submitting in your own personal relationships?”  A husband submits to God by loving his wife like Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it.  A wife submits to God by submitting to her husband just as if she would submit to the Lord.  While this may not be enjoyable, this is not an option given by God, it is  a command.  Do you want to be more Christ-like?  Christ submitted His will to the will of God the Father.  Christ obeyed even when He didn’t want to.  He submitted for the entire human race to benefit.  What about you?  Who will benefit from your submission?  Even if you don’t see who will, God still says to do it!
