SO MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE TRULY SUBMITTED THAT YOU MUST BE A WEAK LEADER OR A WEAK PERSON.
The TRUTH is that if we are going to really be like Jesus then SUBMISSION to AUTHORITY is His example.
The Word is so clear concerning AUTHORITY and that everyone needs to be SUBMITTED to someone.
A PERSON SUBMITTED TO NO ONE IS A RENEGADE THAT WILL CRASH BECAUSE THERE ARE NO BANKS TO THE RIVER.
“NOBODY IS GOING TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO!”
“I AM MY OWN AUTHORITY!”
“I DON’T NEED ANYONE OVER ME!”
Jesus was the greatest leader that ever stepped foot on the planet and His EXAMPLE was SUBMISSION!
John 5:19, Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
John 12:49, For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.
JESUS TOTALLY SUBMITTED TO HIS AUTHORITY!
Aristotle, “One who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader.”
WE ARE CALLED TO SUBMIT TO AUTHORITY!
- All of us to God – James 4:7, Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
- Submit to government as long as it does not contradict the Word – Rom. 13:1-7
- Wives submit to husbands – Eph. 5:22
- We must all submit under spiritual authority – Heb. 13:17, Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.
WE ALL HAVE TO SUBMIT TO SOMEONE OR WE WILL BE OUT OF ORDER.
SUBMISSION DOES NOT MEAN WEAK, IT MEANS YOU ARE WISE, OBEDIENT, AND STRONG!
