Our last life rule just might be the hardest – submit. No one likes to hear this and no one likes to talk about it unless it is telling others they need to submit to us, but what God says is “submit to one another.” While there are many reasons why we might say no to this life rule, there is one big reason to say yes. We put others first because 2000+ years ago, Jesus put us first. The humble submission of Jesus is THE example of what it means for us to submit to one another.
The author Andy Stanley says, “Christianity is personal but it was never designed to be private.” As the body of Christ we are called to be part of each other’s lives and this week’s life rule speaks directly to this situation. To encourage one another goes far beyond saying “good job” and “way to go.” It means being willing to get involved in other people’s lives and allowing others to get involved in ours. God’s Life Rules continue to challenge and change the way we live.
There is a life rule God gives that can break the power of our self-centered nature as well as strengthen and heal relationships and that is to serve.
