For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son…
When God the Father called Jesus to surrender His life, He did. He didn’t just walk to Calvary and then say, “That was quite the walk, and after that beating and all, I’ve done enough”. He didn’t hang on the cross for 15 minutes and then say, “Well, that was long enough, it’s been a physically and emotionally exhausting day, guess I’ll get down now”. No, He didn’t! He surrendered His life entirely to his father and died so that you and I could have the opportunity to live in freedom, not slavery.
To who do you surrender daily? A selfless God, or a selfish god? It is time to loosen the tight grip of your fingers on your heart and entirely surrender it to your Father who loves you.
…that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
