A Life of Surrender
Surrender: a word the world understands to mean failure, defeat, giving up. But for followers of Jesus, it's the beginning of victory. We surrender to His will and ways, inviting His kingdom to be fully established in our lives-its principles and culture permeating every aspect of who we are. We lose our lives so that we would gain Christ's life, and come to resemble Him so completely in the process, that the world around us begins to change as the Holy Spirit leads us to deeper levels of humility, sacrifice, compassion, and forgiveness.
