“Submit Yourselves To God”

5 05 2011

Greetings I bring to you my dear friends in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer! Dear friends, as we look into another article for the day, let us take a look at the above topic. It says “Submit Yourselves To God.” Today my friends, have you and I submitted ourselves fully to God? Let us take a look what the word of God has to say about submission and why we need to submit to God?

Dear friends, what is the true definition of submission? It is yielding to another’s desires without resistance. Submission to another’s wishes is an attitude of the heart done willingly, while surrender is yielding by being forced to do so. Our first submission should be unto the Lord. “As Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy might.”( St Matthew 22:37) God never forces someone to follow Him nor does He wants us to be forced to follow or yield to another human being.God wants us to lovingly submit to Him and also to each other.

Dear friends, as we take a look at the disciples, they were never force to follow Jesus but when He called them they willingly submitted to Jesus and followed where ever Jesus went. They submitted unto Jesus with a willing heart. Nobody forced the disciples to follow Jesus. Each disciples submitted individually unto the Lord Jesus. Friends, why is is important for us to submit ourselves unto the Lord? It is because as it is written in the book of James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.Come near to God and he will come near to you.”

Yes, my friends, that is why we need to submit ourselves before God. When we submit ourselves and all our plans to God, God will always lead us and make ways for us even when times are difficult for us. Remember if we do not submit to God, then to who are we going to submit ourselves to? At times, as it is written in James 4:1-2 “What causes fights and quarrels? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God.”

Dearly beloved friends,we all need to submit to God. If we do not submit to God,  those things that are stated above will take place. What actually causes fights and quarrels among people? It all comes from our selfish ambitions and mind you my friends, being selfish is definitely not from God. It is from Satan. Even fights and quarrels are from Satan. Satan does not want people to live in peace and harmony! If we can all submit to God first and then to mankind, Satan has then have to flee. Satan knows that we know our standing and position with God.

Dear friends, the more we submit ourselves with God and then with mankind,we will all be able to see a change in our lives. Jesus submitted himself obediently to His Father in Heaven to die for the sins of all mankind regardless of our race and religion. Because of the submission, we are all made clean of our sins and we are reconciled back to God by the blood of Jesus in Calvary 2000 years ago. If Jesus can submit to God what about us my friends? Is it too hard or difficult to submit to God?

Friends, we do not want to submit to God because we choose to be a friend of the world. And if anyone chooses to be a friend of the world he or she becomes an enemy of God. Friend’s, do you not know that friendship with the world is hatred towards God? Yes, my friends, that is why many of us out there are reluctant to submit ourselves to God. Today friends, you have the right whether you want to submit to God or not? God will never force you. He gives you the freedom to choose so choose wisely my friends! Have a Blessed Day.

God Bless.
