A Word Fitly Spoken

Why is submission so scary?

January 16, 2020

The S word - it scares us doesn't it? We're talking about the word "Submit," and for many women, being in submission sounds like a door to abuse.

What a comfort to know that submission doesn't mean being abused, following a list of rules or being treated like a door mat, but it is an easy yoke that Jesus asks of all His followers. In this episode Amy and Michelle discuss why submission is mocked as a sign of weakness, but in fact is one of the strongest pillars of society.
