  • True surrender


    "Taking up my "cross" means a life voluntarily surrendered to God."

    - A. W. Pink

    "Just as water ever seeks and fills the lowest place, so the moment

    God finds you abased and empty, His glory and power flow in."

    - Andrew Murray

    "Oh that God would give me the thing which I long for! That... I may

    see a people wholly devoted to God, crucified to the world, and the

    world crucified to them. A people truly given up to God in body,

    soul and substance! How cheerfully would I then say, 'Now lettest

    thou thy servant depart in peace.'"

    - John Wesley

    "We take our stand at the cross and consent to be nailed to it,

    voluntarily, actually; to submit to the pain whereby the flesh dies;

    the hands are pierced that carnal work may no longer be done in

    the energy of the flesh; the feet are pierced that no longer we

    may walk according to the flesh; the brow is pierced with the

    thorn crown that our head may not any longer be held up for

    human diadems and fading laurel wreaths..."

    - A. T. Pierson

    "He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal

    claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar

    that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself."

    C.S. Lewis

    "If we will only surrender ourselves utterly to the Lord, and will

    trust Him perfectly, we shall find our souls "mounting up with

    wings as eagles" to the "heavenly places" in Christ Jesus,

    where earthly annoyances or sorrows have no power to disturb us."

    - Hannah Whitall Smith
