Song Series: White Flag

White Flag

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. - Galatians 2:20

Go to Africa.

That's what we often fear God will ask us to do if we surrender. May-be  we don't really believe that He wants what's best for us. Now, we'd never say that out loud, but really, isn't that kind of how we feel? So, we settle for good enough. Consequently this settling spills over into our daily walk with Christ (which is what surrender is really all about) and the next thing we know we've become the very person we never intended to be. We become a  "Casual Christian".

Casual Christian is just another term for lukewarm, and we all know how God feels about that! (Revelation 3:15-16)

So, what to do...what to do? Hmmmm...Oh, I know!

JUST BE REAL. "Repent and return to God performing deeds appropriate to repentance." (Acts 26:20) No-one's looking for perfection, not even God, but He is looking for a heart that's really His (2 Chronicles 16:9).

God knows you and He chose you anyway to be His child. So, buck up little trooper! (Romans 5:8)

Trust Him,  and then walk with Him right where you're at. God's love is unfailing. He will teach you how to walk in His way. (Psalm 143:8)

Surrender doesn't mean defeat. Surrender means victory - Christ wins through you; all for His glory. (Galatians 2:20)

When we give up "good enough" we win God's best.
