Key to the Series: Submission!! Ephesians 5:21 Page 1823 – Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 1 Peter 5:5 Page 1892 – Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
Willing to Bow? When we are willing to bow to God and to one another God has room to work.
