Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Peter 2:13
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Submit, submit, but what is godly submission?
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Godly submission is realizing and accepting our place and responsibility before God and men while applying what is said in Colossians 3:23.
What is godly leadership? Godly leadership is leadership that sets an example by following Christ.
So, to lead one must first submit to follow God, and when in submission one is a leader by example just as Christ is for us.
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
1 Peter 2:21
For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
