PRAYER: Pray today for surrender in your life.
DEVOTION: “You cannot get into life except through death, and you cannot get into death except by life. The only way to go into fullness with God is for the life of Christ to swallow up the natural life. For the natural life to be swallowed up, there must be nothing there but helplessness until the life of Christ strengthens the natural life. Yet instead of the natural life being strengthened, the spiritual life comes forth with abounding conditions.” (pg 100)
The natural life must be swallowed up by the life of Christ.
Pretty bold statement if you ask me. What does that mean? Well, surrender. Pure, unadulterated surrender. Nothing more, nothing less. We must completely surrender all of it to Jesus. All of it. Not just pieces. Not sections. Not just this part and not that part. All of it.
Are you ready for that? Are you ready to make that commitment?
Honestly. Some days. Yes. Others. No.
God. Help our unbelief. Destroy our apathy and draw us closer to You.
