Bible Verse for Today
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)
Surrender your life, everything you are to the Lord Jesus Christ. When you do this, you are automatically made a son – the Holy Spirit comes to you when you surrender all. Surrendering all means you are letting go of the works of the flesh and allowing the Holy Spirit to take control of it all for you.
The Apostles surrendered themselves for the move of God when they were gathered in the upper room. Acts 2:4 “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” Romans 12:1, 2: “I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — which is your Spiritual worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Nothing in this world lasts so why holding unto them, we should give all to God in exchange for eternal life that he will surely give us. There are some things that we won’t have access to if we don’t surrender ourselves to God – the treasure of salvation would be hidden to us if we don’t humble ourselves and surrender all.
