Every person on earth is subject to some kind of authority.These authorities, however, are ineffective without suubmission. God’s authority consistently demands submission. No matter the vessel, source or method God utilizes, the requirement is unwavering.  

It doesn’t matter what good or precious thing we can offer God in lieu of His instructions.If we refuse or rebel then Satan is the one being glorified. Can we look closer with more detail? It is to our hurt, when we persuade ourselves that our church meetings, giving of tithes or offerings, preaching, teaching, internal or external church activities, and such can become an alternative to submission to God’s authority. God’s will and our submission must exist as one. Therefore if God’s authority exists as pre-eminence in the universe, then submission from our part must supersede everything else. In simplistic terms nothing is more important to God as our submission; neither should anything other than the will of God be more important to us. Submission to God’s authority, since it is done willingly on our part, declares our love, trust and obedience to God the Father.
