Submission is probably the most abused and misunderstood spiritual discipline. We often think of it in terms of a wife submitting to her husband within the marital relationship. However, that really isn’t what submission is all about.
It is interesting to look at submission as a spiritual discipline — remember, spiritual disciplines are activities that Jesus himself did — activities that we do to draw us closer to Him. Jesus submitted to His father — and we must also submit our entire lives to God. When we do that, other areas of submission fall into place.
In this video, Tom and I discuss submission and give some practical ways that you can practice it in your every day life.
