As incredibly as it may seem, these words came out of the mouth of a girl who says she wants to do the work of God on the Altar. After receiving guidance on a particular activity that was to be held, and seeing that it would go against her plans that day, she simply said that she would not do it because she does not bow down her head to anyone.
So I decided to write this post. If there is someone else out there that has this kind of thought, let me tell you that you are not prepared to serve God on the altar, not even in the atrium. A servant of God is aware that the will of God and His direction must be followed; and we can never place our will in front of His.
The Lord Jesus Himself made this very clear in His Word: “For I came down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” John 6:38
If for any reason you think that you will not have to submit to anyone, that your desire will prevail, and you will not respect the authorities established by God; know that you will not succeed in God's work or anywhere. As we all know we are not absolute, life does not revolve around ourselves. Since children we have to subject ourselves to our parents, teachers, security officers, etc.
If we are not willing to do so we show that we are rebels, we do not respect anyone, and the only thing that matters is to accomplish our will. This reveals a lack of fear, and when there is not fear there is not new birth.
I have written several times about this: the work on the Altar demands total renounce, we do not choose where to live, with whom to live, we cannot make plans and if we do we must be aware that they can change because of the work of God. We have people above us, responsible for us, and we owe them respect.
Whoever thinks that she/he can do what they want and decide their own life has not yet understood what it is to serve God and submit to Him.
If you want to do your will and are not willing to bow down your head to anyone, know that you will face many problems along the way, because in this life we need to be humble to move on and create a relationship with other people.
Think about it my friends, so that you do not suffer later!
