The Resurrection of Jesus makes Christians live differently towards one another. Paul continues the theme of submission in the examples of the home and workplace. Children are exhorted to submit to parents in obedience and honor, and fathers submit to God by not provoking their children and training them in the faith. Bond-servants are to submit to masters with respect and obedience, as if they were serving the Lord, while Masters submit to God by not mistreating them. So Christians are called to the job of submission, whether in a position of authority or not.
