S – … submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.  Eph. 5:21 ESV

O – The relationship that people in the church have with one another is described as ‘submitting’.  The reason we submit to one another is our ‘reverence for Christ.’  I think our fear/rejection/objection for submission is one of the biggest problems we face in church.

A – Again I must examine my life and look for how I relate to others in the church.  I must be sensitive to their needs and try to understand (or at least recognize) their way of living for God.  “All things are lawful, but not all things build up.”

P – Lord, my way often leads the wrong way, forgive me when I have gone down that road.  Help me to be aware of others.  Teach me to remain free while submitting to those you have placed around me.  May my thoughts and actions be pleasing to you this day.  Amen.
