Submission Scripture

A couple of people asked for a list of the key references from the ‘submissions’ section of today’s message (Sunday, December 6, 2009). Always glad to share Scripture! Here’s the outline with the Scripture references:

I. Mary’s example of submission (Luke 1:26-38)
“may it be to me as you have said”
II. Joseph’s example of submission (Matthew 1:18-25)
“he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded”
III. Our submissions
A. To God (Hebrews 12:9, James 4:7)
B. To governing authorities (Romans 13:1)
C. Of servants to masters (1st Peter 2:18)
D. Of wives to husbands (Ephesians 5:22)
E. (of children to parents) (Ephesians 6:1, Luke 2:51)
F. To church leaders (Hebrews 13:17)
G. To one another (Ephesians 5:21)

When I was preparing I ran across a crystal clear discussion of the New Testament word ‘submission’. Here’s the link:
