Submitting to god is a major part of being a Christian. Those who claim to be Christians but don't submit to god are in fact not true Christians at all because they haven't truly surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ.
Benefits of submitting to god
The benefits of submitting to God include peace, joy, hope and purpose for your life. When you submit to God, you humbly accept His ways as the only way of achieving your dreams and desires in life.
In every relationship there are laws and rules that are in place to ensure that everyone's interests are protected and no one is left in danger. Similarly, in our relationship with god, we must obey the law so that we don't end up blaspheming God and His Word through rebellious actions.
Rewards from god
When we obey God's laws, we are rewarded with His blessing. This is because when we do what He tells us to do, we are putting His name and words on our lips which will bring glory to Him.
Submission Frees up other people
When you submit to God, you are at last free to value other people as they are. This is what Jesus meant when he said, "Submit to God and trust Him with your life."
When you submit to god, you will be able to love others unconditionally and not be afraid to forgive them. This is not just for your spouse but also for your children and your friends as well.
