This week, formation Fridays features a sermon on "The Sweet Surrender of Submission" from yours truly. Hit play when you have a 30 minutes to discover the discipline that changes our posture, our relationship to Abba, and our lives. Jesus says: dying to self is the only way to truly live. Yet pastor and author Richard Foster noted, “Of all the spiritual disciplines none has been more abused than the discipline of submission.” While the Church worries and frets about external submission, Jesus calls us to a better way: submission of the heart, a voluntary emptying of ourselves so that we might truly be set free. Learn from his example and experience the sweet surrender of submission.
