Fully Surrender

military man reading Bible

Faith has legs . . . I heard about a man some years ago who was rolling a wheelbarrow back and forth on a tightrope across Niagara River. Thousands of people were shouting him on. He put a 200-pound sack of dirt in the wheelbarrow and rolled it over, and then he rolled it back. He turned to the crowd and asked, “How many of you believe that I can roll a man across?” Everybody shouted! One man in the front row was very excited in his professed belief. The man pointed to this excited professor and said, “You’re next!” You couldn’t see that man for dust! He didn’t actually believe it. He thought he believed it—but he was not willing to get in the wheelbarrow. Just so with Christ. Many people say they believe on Him, they say they follow Him. But they never have stepped into the wheelbarrow. They actually never have committed and surrendered themselves wholly, 100 percent to Christ.

Prayer for the day

Loving Lord Jesus, it was only when I surrendered everything to You that I knew the ultimate joy and peace that had always escaped me.

    The Billy Graham ministry is blessed above all. They continue to do the work of God wherever God sends them to spread the good news of Christ. Surrender all, yes that must be the way to peace. I am looking for that peace that passes all understanding. I need you Lord Jesus.

    Thankyou. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”"May God bless us everyone.” PTL in the 2000 languages of the world by faith, in Jesus name amen.” From the good Holy Bible, we quote.

    Surrendering your life to Christ can be very difficult for some. However the inner peace and joy you will find are more than worth it.
