Fullness and abundance in surrender

October 23rd, 2013

Here is a snippet from today’s Our Daily Bread titled, “Losing And Finding Our Lives In Him”. These two paragraphs jumped out at me so I thought I would share them.

“I suspect that many of us may be afraid of what will happen if we obey Jesus’ words: “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it” (Luke 9:23-24).

Our Savior reminded His followers that He came to give us life abundantly (John 10:10). We are called to lose our lives for Christ, and in so doing discover the fullness of life in Him.”

I think it is a good reminder today. The more we surrender to Christ, the more fuller and abundant our lives will be.

God Bless,
