I am not surrendered to Christ…
I am dead!
Someone who is dead is not surrendered. I have been crucified with Christ. Dead, dead, dead!
“So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” (Rom 6:11) Take on a new mindset… I am dead (old me). I am alive! (new me)
JC has given me a brand new life. His mercies are new every morning. I don’t have to sing ‘I surrender all’ a 100 times & get goosebumps. Life is too short, & I have this brand new life that just keeps getting better as I keep finding new benefits I didn’t even know I had.
Perhaps this is a very inconvenient truth, but it needs to be said. JC doesn’t want people who are surrendered. He wants dead people. I am dead… woohoo! But JC gives me a whole new life & he says go for it! Run!
I don’t live like a dead person. I live like a person who is very much alive. Give me the nations! The earth is my inheritance!
