Are you the Master of your life? If so, how’s that working for you? Is it going to take being bucked off our horse on the way to Damascus before we realize who has total control over our life? Hint: It isn’t us (men or women). It is Jesus, our God, Savior, Lord, and Master. John the Baptist said; “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Spiritual growth; it’s a process and the process begins by yielding all we are too all He is. I remember a hymn I sang as a young boy called “I surrender all” it starts with:
All to Jesus I surrender;
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.
“All” means just that: “All!”
Think on these words: Jesus, surrender, freely, ever, love, trust, presence, daily, and live.
Surrendering our life fully to Christ is not freedom’s end; its true freedom’s beginning. Growth comes when we let the “Old Man” go and welcome the “New Man.” Paul says, “If anyone belongs to Christ, there is a new creation. The old things have gone; everything is made new!” Grace fully realized; is a life freely, fully, and daily surrendered to Christ.
