Sacrifice, Submission, Surrender

“So, I had to ask myself this week – why is submission such a dirty word to me?

I am okay with giving up material goods – sacrificing my last dollar, the clothes off my back or even sharing my home. Sacrifice? No big deal. Surrender? Well, I’ve learned to surrender my all to Jesus. I’ve learned to trust that God is in control of everything involving my life. So, surrender – I can do that. I am submitted to God – no doubt about that…. Being a yielded vessel for God sounds great, but being a yielded vessel for God’s people…well… that’s another story….

Imagine how amazing life would be if each of us could get over ourselves every day and serve our loved ones, our community and our neighbors selflessly. Imagine if we simply laid down our life to serve and to love. In such a world, no one would go hungry or thirsty for God’s grace and mercy.”
