Living the Surrendered Life
The word surrender doesn’t have very positive connotations in our society. It tends to be seen as a weakness. However, surrendering actually takes more strength than you can even imagine. We don't need to carry shame, worry, ingratitude or fear around on our backs. We need to “give it up completely” as one of the definitions of surrender suggests. I believe that when we surrender our lives to the Lordship of Christ we will find the abundant life promised us in John 10:10. After all, God gives His best to those who leave the choice to Him.
