Daily Devotional
Do You Daily Surrender to God?

“I have been crucified with Christ; 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 for me.”

Galatians 2:20


Ponder This

I start my day by lifting my hands to God and saying, “God, I thank You for Jesus. Jesus, thank You that You gave Yourself for me.” That is saving blood. Then I lift my hands and I say, “Thank You, Jesus, that You gave Yourself to me!” That is the shared blood. Then I lift my hands in surrender, and I say, “Now, Lord, live Your life through me. I am Yours today.” He didn’t just forgive me and say, “Okay, Adrian, it’s up to you.” He gave Himself for us so that He might give Himself to us so that He might live His life through us.

Just as you survive by the blood flowing in your body right now, the blood of Jesus Christ, the life of God, flows through His Church. It is the blood that cleanses. It hasn’t just cleansed; it continually cleanses us each day.

  • When have you tried to live life on your own terms? What was that like?
  • How do you remind yourself to daily surrender to Christ?
