Surrendered to Christ

today's reading.
Colossians 3:18-25   Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them...

For whatever reason none of us seem to like the word submit. But the life of a Christian really is about submission and it starts with each of us surrendering our hearts and lives to Christ. So when we reach Colossians 3: 18-25 Paul is simply laying out a properly functioning family, starting with Christ at the head.

So was there something from this passage that spoke to your heart today? How are you submitting to God and working heartily for the Lord? Tami 

P.S. If you struggle with the word "submit" I encourage to talk to God about it. Ask Him to change your heart.
