Stewardship begins with submission. Full submission does irreparable damage to the lower kingdoms and advances the kingdom of God immeasurably. As stewards of the Gospel and our families, there’s no better way to live properly than to get out of the way and allow Jesus to live His life through you. Your repentance of your old ways allows the ways of Christ to come forth in your life. The more you submit to His ways, the more trustworthy you become and the more you resemble Him.
Start wherever you can right now. Find out what the Lord is asking you to set aside in your life. Submit to His power to remove it from you. Watch with a spiritual excitement as His power overtakes the strangle hold that sin has had over you. Continue to submit to Him until every residue is gone, no matter how long it takes. Then, when the entanglement is removed, rejoice in the freedom you have through your participation in one more miracle that glorifies the work of Jesus. Rest there until He chooses to focus on your next limitation. Then move with Him against it until you’re free from it. Continue on in this manner until you delight only in His ways and are free from yours.
