Let The Spirit Flow (Part 3)
We must remain submissive to the “positions” of God around us. We must give into or surrender to another’s authority. Whether that is the biblical counsel of the Lord or actual leadership in our lives. A submitted heart allows the Spirit to flow into and through our lives. A truly submitted Christian will never look at self as the authority for their lives. Submission will have an outward focus, not an inward one. It suppresses self for another. Love creates the environment for submission thus God, Who is love, creates an environment for us to be submitted in. Let’s look at submission.
Part 3 – A truly submitted Christian will never look at self as the authority in their lives, there is always a higher authority whether that be another believer or God Himself. Greatness in the Kingdom of God is through servanthood. Pastor Mike continues encouraging us through the Scriptures about the importance of submitting to the God-given authority in our lives and leaving promotion and blessing in God’s hands and timing.
- Submission to God will cause you to lay down your life for others, especially the church.
- To complain about giants in your life is to doubt God.
- To complain about the God-given leadership in your life is to doubt God. (watch your mouth)
