LIVING THE SURRENDERED LIFE?
"I Surrender All.” This famous hymn was written by art teacher turned music evangelist. Judson W. Van De Venter, in 1896. Reprinted in countless hymnals ever since the song is an all-time favorite. How many times have we sung these words. "I will ever love and trust Him, in His presence daily live?" It is wonderful to assert in a song that we have made such a commitment, but how does it work from day to day? What does it really mean to surrender all to God? How do you actually do that in more than a symbolic way? The answers to these questions and more are found in this book as it represents some of the devotional insights and inspired wisdom God has shared with saints down through the centuries. The light God provided them on their path can help illuminate our own. The answers they discovered to these same questions can inform our search as well. More than just a devotional thought for the day, the book invites the reader to intentionally and prayerfully engage with the Word. To that end. four styles of writing are included in the book:
- Excerpts and adaptations from 2000 years of Christian writings
- Hymns and poems from across the centuries and around the world
- Scripture passages converted to confessions of truth for recitation
- Extended Bible studies in a daily format for discipleship building
The path of absolute surrender to Jesus Christ is a life-long journey that begins with a simple prayer. You will learn how to pray that prayer by example in this book. As you learn from faithful followers of Jesus in the past, you will be mentored and motivated to pursue Victory Through Surrender.
