1 Corinthians 11:1 (KJV): Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
WISDOM FOR THE SUBMITTED CHRISTIAN
The instructions of your spiritual authority must always be submitted to the Word of God.
In the church of Christ today, it is sad to see some Christians exalting what is spoken by pastors, apostles, prophets or any spiritual authority above what God says.
Succinctly, it is this thinking and attitude that makes ‘God’ of the minister instead of Jehovah. It is therefore contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
No man of God died for your sins only Jesus the Messiah did. So listen to your man of God but only according to truth!
Don’t perish because of him or her. Follow him or her as he or she follows Christ.
Christ is the standard. Hallelujah!

The instructions of your spiritual authority must be submitted to the Word of God. Follow him or her as he or she follows Christ. Christ is the standard!
PRAYER: My God, I thank you so much for this wisdom. Lord, these truths in their simplicity and firmness preserve the Church and minister to us in the ways that grow us and make us accountable in the eyes of the many that study our patterns every day. You’ve taught me submission but you have also taught me the pattern of submission. It can only be in accordance to your Word and after Christ. My life is framed by this knowledge to the glory of your name. Amen.
