Yielding To Christ


Get this down big, plain, and straight. It is not your ability that counts when it comes to getting victory. It is also not your responsibility. It is your response to His ability.

You must choose. You can’t do it without Him. He will not do it without you. You must yield.

I heard about a man who was driving out of one of those side roads onto the interstate in a little pick up truck covered with dust. He didn't slow down, just shot out on the interstate. A great big eighteen wheeler screeched to avoid the truck—causing both to pull off the road to avoid a collision.

The trucker leaned out of the window and said, "Hey, didn’t you see that sign?" He said, "What sign?" The trucker said, "That sign that said, Y-I-E-L-D." "Oh," he said, "I opened the window and yield as loud as I could."

Now, that's funny, but it proves a point—if you want to gain the victory, you have to yield to Jesus with all of your heart. Romans 6:13 says, "Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God."
