Week 1: Surrender
10 minutes

There comes a point in our lives where we have to ask ourselves, “Am I really fully surrendered to God?”

     …if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is LORD,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.    Romans 10:9-10
    Grk: Kyrios: Lord, master, owner.

It’s hard, but it is so easy…I have to purposely pursue this. Denying myself and surrendering my life to my King. It’s hard, but it is so easy…because the Spirit of God enables me to do it.


    And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple…any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.    Luke 14:27, 33

    For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.     Matthew 16:25

    For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.    John 3:16
