Surrender in Christ

November 2018 Nile beach Hotel grounds in Juba, South Sudan

Luke 9:24 ” For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.

So what does it profit to gain the whole world and lose yourself? Learning to surrender your sense of self can be a life long process. The world is always telling us, ” Make it Happen “, ” Keep Striving “. In the end ask your self, ” What am I striving for? ” Who am I in Christ? Sure if we are striving to be more like Christ or to strive to lose ourselves, yet we are striving for the creature comforts of the world. In many cases we are proceeding out of self instead of being led or inspired by The Holy Spirit. Surrender to Christ daily. For today is the day you will only have, so today let go and let God. Today is the day to surrender your self and allow Christ to rule your consciousness, your soul. Be patient and practice surrender.

Mid-Week Prayer: ” Many times Lord I have failed to surrender and continue to exercise my will, my way and I fail to serve you. To the world no one cares, yet in you you yearn for all of me. Help me to be more like you and less like the world. Lord may Thy will be done. Help me. Amen!! “
