Walking In Submission Will Cause You To Grow In Christ.

 

Walking in submission will cause you to grow in Christ.

Walk in submission to Christ, and you will grow.

     
  • When children submit to parents, they are built up and they grow in Christ. 
  •  
  • When wives submit to their husbands, they are built up.
  •  
  • Since the apostles are built on the foundation of Jesus Christ, walking in submission to the government of the church will cause you to grow. 
  •  
  • This is true when you submit to elders and deacons in the local church. 
  •  
  • When any member submits to any other member, they die to self.  
  •  
  • Whenever you die to self, you grow in Christ.
 

 Some think that they can submit to Christ directly without submitting to the pattern and ordinances of God.  That would be impossible.  There are some who set themselves as apostles (though they may not use the term, apostle) because they don't want to submit to those apostles whom God has set.  

  1 John 2:18-19 & 4:1-6 & 20-21 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.  But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.   Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.  We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error....If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?  And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
