Submitting to God

"When we submit ourselves to God, we are placing our lives under His mission. Of course this is always easier when we agree with God and far more difficult when we do not. We cannot assume that we are living a life of genuine submission to God simply because we do what God says when we are in agreement. The real test of submission is when we disagree, when we don't like what has said because it goes contrary to our personal interests or desires. If we find ourselves unwilling to submit to truth in those cases, then we are living by truth not because we agree with God, but because God agrees with us." ~ Erwin McManus; Uprising, pgs. 57-58
