How should I submit?

Romans 12:11 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.

Matthew 26:39He went on a little farther and fell face down on the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will, not mine.”

Submit yourself to God’s will so that you can be connected to God’s great plan for you.

And further, you will submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Submit to each other in marriage so you will build each other up and encourage each other.

Hebrews 13:17Obey your spiritual leaders and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they know they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this joyfully and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit.

Submit to spiritual leaders and pray for them. This allows them to guide you.

Titus 2:9-10Slaves must obey their masters and do their best to please them. They must not talk back or steal, but they must show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. Then they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way.

Submit to your leaders and pray for their wisdom.
