Time for a Great Cartoon! (Unconditional Surrender!)

“Unconditional surrender” — A great description of what ought to mark the Christian’s life.

Why ought the believer unconditionally surrender to the Lord?
(1) If He is Lord, He deserves our obedience, our worship, our service.
(2) Because He is Lord, He knows better than we do. Following His Word makes perfect sense IF it is true (which it is).
(3) We need to recognize that our sinfulness gets in the way of our listening to and following the Lord.

May I ask you, where are you unconditionally surrendering to the Lord?

Time for a Great Cartoon! (unconditional surrender)

Screen Shot 2015-10-31 at 5.41.11 AMUnconditional surrender.  The expression itself conjures up images of defeat and failure.  However, what if the One to whom we give unconditional surrender is the Very Best Master of the Universe, One who loves us with an everlasting love?  What does unconditional surrender look like then?

I’ve been teaching my four-year-old grandson the meaning of the word “UNCLE!”  We wrestle on Grammy’s freshly-made bed, tickling, poking, thumping, and grabbing each other amidst screams and laughter.  When I get exhausted, I cry “UNCLE!”, and he knows he’s defeated me.

"Ready to surrender?"

“Ready to surrender?”

All of us need to cry not “UNCLE!”, but “FATHER!”, giving in to the God who lovesus.  But we sometimes keep wrestling against Him, refusing to surrender.

The Christian life is a constant challenge to unconditionally surrender to the God who loves us and wants the best for us.  Surrendered recently?
