Ephesians 5:21 ” Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”

Christianity is not a competition sport, but we sure can make it that way.  The Lord tells us to serve one another with love and humility…but we’d rather  make it a contest to see who can be the most spiritual…and the one whose the most  highly respected and honored by others.  So what we’ve done is taken the Lord’s words of submitting to one another… and done the opposite.  Instead of being accountable to God with respect and honor towards fellow Believers…we approach these interactions with envy, competition, and how we can make ourselves look more saintly.  Sadly, this  “holier-than-thou”  attitude is contrary to all of Christ’s teachings, and is actually willful disobedience to His Word.
