The word “submit” usually comes with baggage… people misinterpret the word to mean “be somebody’s slave” or “let someone take advantage of you.” We submit all the time to laws, rules, even physical urges. When James commands us to submit ourselves to God, he wants us to know we are to voluntarily order our lives so that Christ comes first. Submission includes yielding to God’s Word, God’s messengers, and God’s way of doing things.
