14 – Submission – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

“Subordination to the guidance of God; within the Christian fellowship, a constant mutual subordination out of reverence for Christ, which opens the way for particular subordination to those who are qualified to direct our efforts toward Christlikeness and who then add the weight of their wise authority on the side of our willing spirit to help us do the things we would like to do and refrain from doing the things we don’t want to do.”

“Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.”  —  Luke 1:38
