Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. –Ephesians 5:21-33

No one enjoys submitting, especially those in their Terrible Twos. Please come here. No! Please put your toys away! No! Please eat your food on your plate. No! Do these behaviors and responses sound familiar?

As we reflect back on 2021, didn’t it seem conversations sounded as if people were stuck in their Terrible Twos? It seemed as if no one was willing to submit to anyone because most people felt their particular brand of truth needed to be heard. Therefore, I get to shout as loud as I want to and profess my truth, or else you’re canceled. Typical Terrible Twos behavior.

But those of us who profess, confess, and believe that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life have a very difficult question to answer each day, according to today’s verse: If I deeply respect, or revere, Christ’s submission to the Father by dying on a cross for me a sinner, can I daily conform myself to His Image and obediently submit myself to others to reflect Christ? Reflect deeply this 2022, as the world desperately needs a Church willing to be conformed to His Image in true submission to one another, as this is His Good and Acceptable and Perfect Will for us until His Glorious Return!!!
