How The “S” Word Can Help You This week
Check out this short powerful clip from last Thursday’s Bible Study.
Monday Morning Devotional: July 18, 2022
Happy Monday, Men!
Whether you’re new to MDN or you’ve been with us for a long time, you’ve probably heard about the “S” word. No, not sin. Not shame. But one of the top ten biblical words that can change your life when understood and lived out.
Are you ready? It’s submission.
The power of God literally manifests itself through submissive manhood. The Bible tells us that even Jesus Himself was a submissive man. And if Jesus was submissive, then so should we. Jesus was equal to the Father but submissive in every way to Him. Submission is not an act of weakness but an exercise in humility as Humility is an attitude, and submission is the action.
Why should we submit to anyone? Because submission requires humility and humility draws the gaze and promotion of God. The Apostle Peter says,
“In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
When we submit to God, the Church, our family, and our brothers in Christ, we are entering into a covenant lifestyle that can’t help but usher in blessings in our life. Trust me when I say this, it’s not easy. I’m not writing this from a place where I have it all figured out. But only what God reveals to us in His Word, and we are in this together to figure out how to submit to God with our lives. And one of those first steps in submitting to God is submitting to His Word.
But how do we do that? What does this look like for you practically? What do you need to submit to God this week? Is there something you’re holding on to that you’re trying to control that you need to let go of? Make sure to take a few minutes after reading this and ask the Lord what you need to submit to Him this week my brother.
Love you guys more than you know!
