Lesson 5

Q: What is the secret to submission?

A: Scripture is quite clear about a wife being in submission to her husband, but how can a Christian woman be at peace with that condition? The answer lies not in your husband, but in your Savior.

The greatest lesson I ever learned in life is this, Jesus Christ is Lord! He is not just my Savior, Messiah and Redeemer. He is my Lord, my Master, my Authority. God, Himself, placed Jesus in that position of authority. 

Acts 2:36

“Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

It’s easy to remember that Jesus gave up His position in Heaven to become flesh and be tempted like us so that He could mediate our thoughts and actions to God the Father. It is even easier to get caught up in knowing that He loved us so much that He died on a cross so we could be saved from our sins. But the fact is, when we give our lives to Jesus and let Him wash away our sins, we also become His servants, therefore proclaiming Him as our Lord. That is difficult to remember. We tend to let it slip from our minds to the point that He stays in the Savior, Redeemer or, even, Friend mode. 

I don’t know about you, but there have been many times in my life when I have refused to do what God wanted because I was afraid or stubborn or simply didn’t want to know His will. Like a child, I wanted to cover my ears and hum or sing out loud to keep from hearing Him. 

Because I am human, I know that it will happen again. Thankfully, Jesus understands. Even though He never gave up or rebelled against God, He was tempted and can now relate to us.

So, what can we do to keep Jesus in the right place in our own lives? The first two things that pop in my head are prayer and Bible study. Those are important and should be a part of our daily lives, but there’s more! Romans 10:9-10 tells us to confess Jesus as Lord. Obviously, that’s something we all should have done before we were baptized, but is it a one-time deal and we can just move on? Romans 14:7-9 says otherwise: 

For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. – Romans 14:7-9 (ESV)

Another way to keep Jesus as Lord of our lives is to practice spiritual disciplines or, as it says in 1 Timothy 4:7, “train yourself in godliness.” This, of course, includes Bible study and prayer, but there’s so much more to it. (Fasting, meditating, memorizing, worshipping, showing gratitude, being thankful, being in solitude, etc.) It’s not simply a checklist of things to do. It’s, as they say, “a means to the end” and the end result is godliness. If we just do these things so we can check them off our list and “appear” to be holy, then we’ve missed the point of Jesus being our Lord. Just like any real relationship, it takes time, effort and sacrifice. It takes a longing for the relationship to work. It takes a genuineness. Jesus has already done all of these things for us and more. It’s our turn to do for Him what He desires – to live a life that gives Him all authority and makes Him the one Lord of our hearts.

Will we mess up? Of course! Will He still love us? Absolutely! Will we keep training? That’s up to us. 

Conclusion: It can often be a real challenge to live in submission to the role of a husband, but if you keep your eyes on the ultimate Lord, He will help you find peace.
