- There is an old hymn that says "All to Jesus I surrender; All to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live. I surrender all,I surrender all; All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all."
What this means to me is that I need to surrender all to Jesus in every part of my life! Which means what I watch on TV, what I look at on the internet, the people I hang out with, the music I listen to and the places I go.
The question I must ask myself is "have I truly surrendered my all to Jesus?" If I have not given all to Him, let me repent and turn away from my sinful behavior.
- Matthew 16:24-27 "Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done."
