 This was the essence of the life of Christ: “I come to do thy will, O my God.” Accordingly the Apostle begins his exhortations with regard to relationships by giving the general precept: “Submit yourselves one to another.” This renders order easy, even when the order of institutions and of authority may fail. Submission, moral obedience, can never in principle be wanting to the true Christian. It is the starting point of his whole life. He is sanctified unto the obedience of Christ (1 Peter 1:2). (Ephesians 6 by J.N. Darby)
 we have God manifesting Himself in each of our positions, and showing us that these are meant to give us opportunity of glorifying God by the good works that were before ordained of God. (Ephesians 5 by W. Kelly)
