What does it mean to be fully surrendered to Christ?
Being fully and unconditionally surrendered to Christ means you have reached a stage in your relationship with God where He is ALL YOU DESIRE. Not His blessings but His presence. It is when you have come to the realization that His face is worth more than His hand.
Unconditional surrender is a product of having absolute faith in the fact that Christ died on the cross for your sins. Through this act of Perfect Love, you have been redeemed and reconciled to the Almighty Father. If you repent of your sins, you shall be saved. You must have faith in this fact.
However, if there is any doubt or just 99% faith, you cannot claim to have fully surrendered to Christ. Just like a child standing on a roof must fully trust that his father standing below will catch him when he jumps, you need to have total 100% faith in God to jump into His loving arms.
You see, God is not impressed by anything we bring Him. All he wants and expects from us is unconditional surrender. What happens after a person is born again is that the Holy Spirit begins to strip the individual of their old self. This continues until there is nothing of the old life remaining. It may take a while, depending on your willingness to allow the Holy Ghost to work in you, but the work must be completed.
Fear, lust, selfishness, seeking man’s rather than God’s approval, love of material possessions – all these attachments to the old life must be eliminated. The only thing that should be in the life of a new creation in Christ is simple and perfect trust in God. It should go to such an extent that you no longer want God’s blessings but only God Himself!
How many believers can boldly and honestly say that they have reached a point where their desire for God is greater than their desire for His blessings?
If He were to withdraw every blessing from your life, would you still trust Him, like the little boy on the roof? Or would you quickly resort to a Plan B – seeking a ladder to help you get down from trouble?
The moment you truly see God for who He really is, nothing will shake you. The world around you may be going to hell, and everyone else may be running around scared, but not you. You are a child of the Most High, and you will know with absolute 100% certainty that He is always with you, no matter what.
You will have absolute trust and unconditional surrender to your Father in heaven!
Do you want to have a personal relationship with Christ? Then you must believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. Repent of your sins and ask Him to come into your heart. Only Christ can reconcile you to your heavenly Father. Say this prayer:
Lord Jesus, I accept that you are the Son of God and you died on the cross for my sins. I repent of all my sins and I ask for your forgiveness. Right now I make you my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for shedding your blood for me at the cross. Amen.
You have now become a child of God. Take the time to read your bible and find a church that teaches the word of God. Let the Holy Spirit work in you to help you become the person God created you to be. God bless you!
