Eph.5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

One of the most difficult things to do is to submit to another person. It’s quite easier to submit to someone assumed greater but harder to submit to someone below or at par with one. It’s easier to say we love God that cannot be seen than to actually love our neighbour that we can see.

To submit one to another is not premised on any condition. There is no condition provided for us to ensure that we submit to ourselves. Instead, the scripture tells us to “prefer one another in honour.” Rom.12:10. This means I must see you as more important than myself and you also must endeavour to see me and other people as more preferential than yourself.

One of the signs of the end time is strong selfish interest. People will pursue their selfish/greedy interest at the expense of others. We must avoid being selfishly attached to ourselves. The needs of others are more important than our personal needs. This also means before you’ll consider your personal comfort, consider the comfort of others. Before you’ll consider your needs, consider the needs of others and try all possible best to help in achieving them.

In submitting one to another, we will be devoid of pride. One tool that is needed the most is humility. A humble man will find it easy to love and to submit. Pride is a killer. It blinds, isolates and then kills.

The Lord will help us submit one to another not in eye service or hypocrisy, but in sincerity and in all honesty as unto the Lord. Amen.
