An Attitude of Submission

Obedience to God is in the state of the heart.  It is being willing to obey God, willing to let God rule in all things.  We cannot say that we will obey God in certain areas in our life, yet in other things we simply refuse to be obedient, that is compromise.

Christianity is obedience to God, the voluntary submission of the soul to His will.

We must be taught to be “temperate in all things” (1 Cor. 9:25)

To be able to submit to Christ, we need to deny ourselves.  In Luke 9:23, it explains how we need to take up our cross daily.  So, daily, we need to deny our own selfish desires and submit to Christ and what he wants for our lives.

Being submitted also pertains to being obedient to God and His word.  The lord desires obedience.  If you put your trust in him, and listen to what he says, he always works things out for our good.  He loves you!
