Wow. So much of this spoke deep into my heart and convicted me. I have almost always been a begrudging obey-er, and while God has honored that obedience and worked in some mighty ways, my heart has always wrestled with that full submission. Thank you for your words and clarity and challenge!

“But when we obey out of our flesh, we are forsaking the relationship.
We are missing revelation and grasping religion instead.”

Such a good distinction between obedience and submission.

Right?! Completely agree — this definition was clear and helpful! May the Lord make my heart sweetly submissive to His ways over my dour “obedience”.
