God, being Sovereign, when He created us in His image and likeness, gave us freewill. We we born with the capacity to choose. In our ‘pre-fall’ state, this choosing was designed to mature us as sons. After the fall, one who has freewill can operate either in rebellion or submission–and the outcome determining which Kingdom they will represent. (So much of what is being done by “the rebellion” is attributed to God–because He is Sovereign).
Ultimately “every knee shall bow and every tongue confess”–but until that day, we who use our freewill to submit to the Lord’s will, wisdom and way demonstrate to a watching creation the way back ‘home’.
Where are you learning the “way of submission”?
