“…OK…OK… you win…I give up…”

Image result for caricature of man "submitting to God."SUBMISSION: I give up! I give up! …. Is this submission? Surely…YES… if you’re being tortured, or threatened, and submission is your “only chance” for survival.

But what if you mean to say that you’re giving into your boss to accept a transfer; or you’re giving in to your fiancé on the change in your wedding date.  Both are still important, surely, but life-changing…doubtful.

Or, on the other hand, it could be that you have decided that you want to turn your life over to Jesus Christ. This “act of submission” is not just LIFE-CHANGING, but for all of “eternity.” Committing to a new career opportunity, typically, requires you’re giving 110% to obtain SUCCESS.

But… submitting your life, and soul, to God is far more important, as it is a “forever” commitment. James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Submitting to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, is not a “game of change,” such that some career moves might involve. Spiritual submission is beyond any type of “worldly submission.” And, the consequences are monumental. Submitting to Jesus, and saying ‘NO’ to satan. Submitting to Jesus Christ is saying “YES” to love, joy, happiness, for all of eternity.

Ephesians 5:1-33 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. … James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
