    Book details


Submission: We’:d rather avoid or abuse it than embrace it. Maybe we get it wrong. Submission has become one of those words (and concept) we’:d rather avoid. It brings up stories and experiences of mistreatment, disrespect, and abuse of power. The concept has been hijacked by authority who have only their own interests in mind and want everyone else to do it “:my way.”: We live in a culture and time of applauding “:my way”:—:unless it bumps into our own way. Or, we try to generalize what submission means, isolating Scripture to support our assumptions or preferences. We use the concordance, search for “:submit,”: then declare the limited results are all God has to say about it. In reality, submission is scattered throughout the Bible. We have to humbly search and change if we want to truly know and live well in submission. We want it to be easy. We want to gather the information we need, follow it, and never have to adjust, but the spiritual journey doesn’:t work that way. It’:s a process. We must submit to the process of learning and changing. Among these pages, you’:ll find excerpts and reflections from nearly every book of the Bible. It’:s important to see God’:s Word as a story, not a collection of sayings, advice, and instruction. Refuse to isolate a few verses about submission (or anything else) and call it “:good enough.”: Submission isn’:t relegated to a few populations of people. It’:s for all of us. Pure submission doesn’:t confine us: it frees us. So, dig in and explore. There’:s lots of ground to enjoy!
