{Philippians 1:6; ESV}
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

But again, we came to the question of absolute surrender, and felt that that is the want in the Church of Christ, and that is why the Holy Ghost cannot fill us, and why we cannot live as people entirely separated unto the Holy Ghost; that is why the flesh and the self- life cannot be conquered. We have never understood what it is to be absolutely surrendered to God as Jesus was. I know that many a one earnestly and honestly says:”Amen, I accept the message of absolute surrender to God”; and yet thinks:”Will that ever be mine? Can I count upon God to make me one of whom it shall be said in Heaven and on earth and in Hell, he lives in absolute surrender to God? “Brother, sister,” the things which are impossible with men are possible with God. “Do believe that when He takes charge of you in Christ, it is possible for God to make you a man of absolute surrender. And God is able to maintain that. He is able to let you rise from bed every morning of the week with that blessed thought directly or indirectly:” I am in God’s charge. My God is working out my life for me. ”

Questions to consider:

  • Why is it hard to trust God to help us surrender to Him?
  • Why is absolute surrender so essential for living a Christian life?
  • What must we do to surrender our lives to God?
