Submission as Love
May 1, 2020
This passage has been debated countless times, with good reason probably. One truth that shines through regardless of how people twist it to control others—there is love in submission.
When we put the needs of others above our own, that is a form of submission. That is love. That is Christ.
These acts of submission can be big or small, but they are all acts of love.
There is no greater love than this, that one lays down their lives for their friends.
