Supreme Submission
Supreme Submission to God was demonstrated by Christ from the moment He was born until the moment He uttered, "It is finished!" on the Cross…all on the basis of love and God's desire to provide a permanent path of redemption for His children.

The choice is ours - will we identify with Christ's crucifixion and "die to self", so we may be transformed and grow closer to God? Or, do we choose a path of disbelief or prideful denial, operating under our own power and forfeiting a right relationship with our Creator?

Once one truly realizes the level of submission that Christ - the Son of God - chose to pursue and achieve at His expense so that we, through Him, could be viewed by God as blameless (despite our human sin nature), it facilitates a renewed perspective on the object, depth and breadth of our faith. "I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me." [Gal 2:20]
