We also explore the importance of submission within Christianity, tracing its origins to the Garden of Eden and examining how the lie used to deceive Eve has infiltrated the church. With a closer look at controversial subjects like wives submitting to their husbands, we discuss how men can lead by example in submitting to God, leading to greater harmony within the home.
Lastly, we share the significance of surrendering to God’s will, as a tool for overcoming our addictions and struggles. By learning from Jesus’ example of perfect submission, we can find true freedom and healing. So, gather with us for this thought-provoking and powerful sermon as we uncover the profound lessons of Jesus’ submission to the Father’s will, and how it can transform our own lives.
This 3-part series delves into the book of Mark, examining the identity of Christ as both the authoritative Son of God and the redemptive Suffering Servant.

Additionally, we consider the relevance of these themes to our lives today. We pray God encounters you wherever you’re at.
