Submission. Now, that's a topic that will clear a room in a heartbeat!
This morning is a golden opportunity to look at submission in a new light. What if we simply break down the word at face value? Sub-mission can remind us that we are "under the mission of God." When we understand the mission of God to be the "sending out" of God, we can see that we are under or included in the sending out of God. That can change our perspective to see submission as a gift - the privilege of being included in what God is doing in the world!
There are more discoveries to make together so let us submit our hearts and minds to hear what God's word has to say to us today.
