fitness tip
Fitness Tip:

A trigger point is a small contraction knot in muscle tissue that keeps the muscle tight and weak.

The difficulty in treating trigger points is that they typically send pain to some other site.

This is called referred pain.

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who arecrushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ. Ephesians 6:5

Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them. Colossians 3:19

It is better to live in a corner of a roof than in a house shared with a contentious woman. Proverbs 21:9

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. Eph.5:22

the relationship the son has with the father
The Relationship the Son has with the Father:

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very natureof a servant, being made in human likeness.  Philippians 2:5-7

the relationship the son has with the father1
The Relationship the Son has with the Father:

“Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. ...Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father.” John 5

the relationship the son has with the father2
The Relationship the Son has with the Father:

I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one —I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:22-23

UNITY

(like the Father and Son have)

is the goal of Submission.

the obedience of the son
The Obedience of the Son

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 

Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered. Hebrews 5:7-8

submission1
Submission
  • “The freedom from having my own way.”
  • Is this just talking about the husband and wife relationship? No!
  • Ephesians 5:21 “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
  • Submission is laying aside my own way, my self-will and stubbornness,
  • in order to acknowledge my God-given authority and bring unity in the situation.

There are six things which the LORD hates, yes, seven which are detestable to Him: 

1. haughty eyes

2. alyingtongue

3. hands that shed innocent blood

4. a heart that devises wickedplans

5. feet that run rapidly to evil

6. a false witness who utters lies

Submission isuniquely applied in the husband-wife relationship!

  • Marriage is the process of becoming one. The problem starts in trying to figure out which one!
  • Marriages are made in heaven. But then again, so are thunder and lightening.
