Full Surrender


George Whitefield said, "I had a day in my life when I fully surrendered in consecration to the Lord and that day I said, 'I call Heaven and earth to witness that I give up myself entirely to be a martyr for Him who hung on the cross for me. I have thrown myself blind-folded and without reserve into His mighty hands!'" He surrendered his everything, because Jesus surrendered everything at the cross. The soldier of the Christ, who has seen God's love towards him, cannot help but fling himself into the heat of the battle, constrained by the same irresistible force that drove Jesus to Calvary. The Savior went to the cross because He loved God and man. Prove your love for God by loving humanity enough to warn them of the reality of Hell... and of their need of the Savior. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
