Biblical submission and the example of Christ

A friend showed me an article on women and theology and it had this gem:

"Christian submission, which finds its ultimate example in Christ, is an act of strength, understanding, and determination. Jesus modeled not a mindless limp compliance but a thoughtful vigorous resolve. His actions did not result from a power struggle with his father but expressed their union. Jesus was not defeated; he was determined to fulfill his father's will."

And this isn't just women to their husbands, but it's us to our parents, us to our churches, us to our government. May God raise up a generation of men and women driven by such radical submission!
