• “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Yes, Lord by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/28/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It’s easy for us to glibly use the name Lord when referring to God. But really calling HimLord is to say, “Yes.” Yes to His will, His Word, and His ways.

“Does surrendering mean I’m going to have to be a missionary or something?”

Nancy: Maybe. Maybe not. But what matters is saying, “Yes, Lord.”

“If I surrender to God, what if He never gives me a husband?”

Nancy: Surrender may mean being happily married for half a century, or it could mean being faithful in a difficult marriage to an unbeliever. What matters is saying, “Yes, Lord.”

“It probably means being poor the rest of our lives.”

Nancy: Surrendering to God may mean you make lots of money to use for the glory of God, or it could mean that you’re content with very little. What matters is saying, “Yes, Lord.”

Total surrender to Christ as Lord means submitting every detail of our lives to His loving rule. Are you doing that?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
