Submission & Service

"If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up the cross daily and follow me." (Luke 9:23)

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…" (Matthew 28:18)

Some people measure success by the size of their salary or by the influence they exert over others. Christ turns this thinking upside down by linking success to service. This final chapter in our survey of the habits of Christ stresses the connection between learning His ways, surrendering to His ways and caring for others.
