OUR WILLS MUST SURRENDER

OUR WILLS MUST SURRENDER

 Guest Article-By A. W. Tozer

The Christian doctrine of obedience to God and to His will is now largely neglected in modern religious circles, and many in our own congregations seem to feel that our obligation to obey has been discharged by the act of believing on Jesus Christ at the beginning of our Christian lives. We need to remember that “the will is the seat of true religion in the soul.” Nothing genuine has been done in a man or woman’s life until his or her will has been surrendered in active obedience. It was disobedience that brought about the ruin of the race. It is the obedience of faith that brings us back again into the divine favor! It needs to be said that a world of confusion results from trying to believe without obeying! A mere passive surrender may be no surrender at all. Any real submission to the will of God must include willingness to take orders from Him from that time on. I keep wondering whether the Lord’s ministers will again give to obedience the place of prominence it occupies in the Scriptures.

Verse

His servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness. Romans 6:16
