Many Do Not Know How to Surrender to Jesus



“I wish you to distinctly understand this point, that souls are kept from obeying the truth by a confusion of ideas, and also because they do not know how to surrender their wills and their minds to Jesus. They want special instruction how to become Christians. The work done for Christ in the world is not made of great deeds and wonderful achievements. These will come in as needed. But the most successful work is that which keeps self as much as possible out of sight.” Ev 152


NOTE: Are we living a double life? The reason why we find it so difficult to become Christian is because we are so divided… The reason why our church remain in Laodicean state is because we are so divided.



To Die to Self Means to Surrender Ourselves Wholly to God


The whole heart must be yielded to God, or the change can never be wrought in us by which we are to be restored to His likeness.” SC 43


God desires to heal us, to set us free. But since this requires an entire transformation, a renewing of our whole nature, we must yield ourselves wholly to Him.” SC 43


We cannot be half the Lord's and half the world's. We are not God's children unless we are such entirely.”  SC 44

To Die to Self Means to Give Up All that Separate Us from God


In giving ourselves to God, we must necessarily give up all that would separate us from Him. Hence the Saviour says, "In the same way," concluded Jesus, "none of you can be my disciple unless you give up everything you have.” Luke 14:33. Whatever shall draw away the heart from God must be given up. Mammon is the idol of many. The love of money, the desire for wealth, is the golden chain that binds them to Satan. Reputation and worldly honor are worshiped by another class. The life of selfish ease and freedom from responsibility is the idol of others. But these slavish bands must be broken. We are not God's children unless we are such entirely.” SC 44





We Must Cooperate with God


Listen! I stand at the door and knock; if any hear my voice and open the door, I will come into their house and eat with them, and they will eat with me.” Revelation 3:20




Dont Refuse Gods Invitation


Every soul that refuses to give himself to God is under the control of another power. He is not his own. He may talk of freedom, but he is in the most abject slavery. He is not allowed to see the beauty of truth, for his mind is under the control of Satan. While he flatters himself that he is following the dictates of his own judgment, he obeys the will of the prince of darkness. Christ came to break the shackles of sin-slavery from the soul. "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." "The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus" sets us "free from the law of sin and death." Romans 8:2. DA 466


We Can't Do Anything by Our Own Strength


In ourselves we are incapable of doing any good thing; but that which we cannot do will be wrought by the power of God in every submissive and believing soul. It was through faith that the child of promise was given. It is through faith that spiritual life is begotten, and we are enabled to do the works of righteousness.” DA 98



We Will Have the Power to Live the Life of Christ Only When We Receive Him and Let Him Dwell in Us.

As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” John 1:12. This power is not in the human agent. It is the power of God. When a soul receives Christ, he receives power to live the life of Christ.” COL 314




We Must Allow the Holy Spirit to Control Our Heart


 To be controlled by human nature results in death; to be controlled by the Spirit results in life and peace. 7 And so people become enemies of God when they are controlled by their human nature; for they do not obey God's law, and in fact they cannot obey it. 8 Those who obey their human nature cannot please God. 9 But you do not live as your human nature tells you to; instead, you live as the Spirit tells you toif, in fact, God's Spirit lives in you. Whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.” Romans 8:6-9


The Holy Spirit Helps Us in Our Weaknesses

The Lord Jesus acts through the Holy Spirit; for it is His representative. Through it He infuses spiritual life into the soul, quickening its energies for good, cleansing it from moral defilement, and giving it a fitness for His kingdom.” MYP 55
