Surrender

Description

We want to be more like Christ, but to do so we must cross the hurdle of surrendering everything to God.

“[Christ] did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
(Matthew 20:28)

Christ’s willingness to sacrifice on behalf of others may seem far beyond our reach. We want to be more like Him, but to do so we must cross the hurdle of surrendering everything to God.

It is at this point that Satan warns us about all the things we might lose. But all that we have belongs to God anyway. The important thing is that we learn obedience.

When we study the lives of the greatest people in the Bible, we find that they did not demand and direct. They followed, just like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego did when they refused to bow before the golden image of a pagan king. (Read the story in Daniel 3.)

They understood God’s power, they knew their right to petition God, they accepted God as the final authority, and they surrendered themselves to Him.

We would do well to follow the example of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
