EXPANDING FREEDOM THROUGH SUBMISSION | 06
Written By Andrew Jones
The disciplines are practices at their core where the Spirit of God does His work of shaping us more into the image of Jesus. Practice the discipline of submission in this way today.
Think back to the Tuesday article
on Submission to Family.
- Take a minute and read Paul’s instructions in Ephesians 5:15-6:4 to households. What stands out to you?
- Of all the key family relationships to which you are called to submit (spouses, siblings, children, grandchildren, etc.), which is the most challenging right now?
- What is one tangible act of submission you can take this week with that relationship? Make a plan to do it.
- Take a minute and ask God to bless this person through your service, even if you do not receive any credit for it, knowing our Father sees in secret.
Week 6 of 8 Submission
Take time to reread Philippians 1:12-30 from Sunday. Review your notes. What is God bringing back to mind from His Word?
Evening Prayer – How you end your day impacts rest and rejuvenation for the next. God’s people throughout history have practiced a surrendering of all things in prayer before they laid down to sleep. While we zero in on the discipline of prayer, each Sunday we will engage in two prayers, allowing the repetition to help us be at home in these prayers.
Morning Prayer – How you start your day informs how you go about your day. Throughout history, God’s people rose early to focus their heart, soul, mind and strength in prayer with God. While we zero in on the discipline of prayer, each Sunday we will engage in two prayers, allowing the repetition to help us be at home in these prayers.
