Absolute Surrender (CLC)
How do we come to absolute surrender?
Ephesians 5:18 instructs, "Be filled with the Spirit." But following such a 'simple' command is anything but simple.
"How much is being done in the spirit of the flesh and in the power of self! How much work, day by day, in which human energy – our will and our thoughts about the work – is continually manifested and in which there is but little of waiting upon God and upon the power of the Holy Ghost! Let us make confession. But as we confess the state of the church and the feebleness and sinfulness of work for God among us, let us come back to ourselves. Who is there who truly longs to be delivered from the power of the self-life, who truly acknowledges that it is the power of self and the flesh and who is willing to cast all at the feet of Christ? There is deliverance!"
Andrew Murray, Absolute Surrender (CLC edition)
Written in preparation for an evangelistic campaign in London, the messages in this book will challenge you to wholly yield your life to the Lord. God longs to fill you with the indwelling power of His Holy Spirit. What's keeping you from giving Him complete control? Murray notes, "Self, seeking to do God's work, is far more dangerous than refusing to obey." Read this challenging book by a giant of the faith, and learn to live with Christ and in the Spirit.
