  • Two different meanings for submit and commit

    The men I spoke about last time discovered that their true identity as believers was paramount to change. That was the first of the keys to unlocking the secret to change. Their second discovery was the actual and literal meaning of two little words: commit and submit.

    Those two little words look the same and are often used interchangeably, but when you discover the real difference they open the door of understanding further. Discovery of their secret happened almost ten years ago for me.
