John Bradshaw - Not Easy, but Vital
When it comes to receiving salvation, you believe in Jesus who has died for you, and you have everlasting life. It's all due to what Jesus has done, and you receive it by faith. But once you're saved you surrender, and you do so daily, that can be difficult. It might be that there are things in your life crying out to you, begging you not to surrender to God. Temptations like your temper or lust.
Romans 6:13 says, "Yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead". Jesus doesn't force your will, even after you come to faith in Christ. Some days you'll want to yield your heart to Jesus, but on other days maybe less.
So, surrender is not always easy, but it's always vital. And you'll grow in that the longer you walk with Jesus. Today and every day: yield your life to Jesus. Let him live his life in you. I'm John Bradshaw, for it is written.
