Are You A Submitted Son Or Daughter?

Are You A Submitted Son or Daughter?

Are you submitted to the Fathers will or are you doing your own thing? To submit means to yield to the control or power of another, give in. In this case give in to God’s will.

Speaking of 'are you a submitted son', in one of my last articles I spoke about the prodigal son. One of the sons was obedient and stayed submitted to his fathers will and the other son left in rebellion and squandered his inheritance.

So the question is, 'which are you, the obedient or the rebellious one, you know the fruit will always tell. In this article, I am speaking about the submitted son, even though, I pray this word will impact you both.

I started with the definition of the word 'submit' because I want to create a picture in our mind of the action that it requires, a bit of sacrifice from our part. Think about it this way; it will make it a little easier to make the decision of being a submitted son or daughter or staying the submitted one:

Jesus was a submitted son, I can hear him say, “I can do nothing unless I see my Father do it.” This is always the confession of an obedient son or daughter.

The blessing of obedience!

Hebrew 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account.

It is more blessed to be obedient and there's a blessing for the obedient.

These are the words of the amen, the faithful and true witness, the rules of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I am about to spit you out of my mouth, you say, I am rich, I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing. But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich, and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness, and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline; so be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in and eat with him and he with me.

To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit on my throne just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3:14

“First we must hear,” Jesus, the Spirit of God comes and knocks at the door, the door of our heart and if we are sensitive and hear we should answer and say yes to his will!

Secondly, we must open the door. After we hear the knock then we must open the door of our heart to the Fathers will over our life. This is a decision of our heart and we alone have the will to make it and be obedient to the task that the Father gives to us.

Then, He will come and eat/ sup with us. Once the door of our heart is open Jesus / Holy Spirit will come and eat with us or make communion; we will receive His will for our lives, His instructions and blessings.

Afterward, the blessings of obedience will come. When we serve the Lord in obedience there are rewards and blessings that come with it. The Lord covers you, protects you and rebukes the devour for you. He keeps you empowered for his service. We must not forget that he is always in charge; so we submit to his will and his blessing. His blessing multiplies us, informs us and gives us longevity and long life. So with this small but important information I decide and choose afresh to be the son of obedience. What about you?

Serving in His kingdom in obedience,
Rev. Varn E Brown, Sr.
