Controlled Surrender

One of the greatest needs of the Church today is surrender to God and His perfect will. Here are some selected scripture that deals directly with it. As taught by Pastor Tillis the seed of it is unbelief.


"Yield yourselves unto God." Romans 6: 13
"Present your bodies...unto God." Romans 12: 1
"They first gave their own selves unto the Lord." 2 Corinthians 8: 5
"That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God." I Peter 4: 2


"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice." Romans 12: 1.
"The Lord hath need of him." Luke 19: 34

Why should we recognize Christ's right: why hear His call: why answer His beseeching for the yielding of our lives? Because surrender is the answer to His love. the supply of His need.


"Be ye steadfast, unmoveable." I. Corinthians 15: 58
"No man having put his hand to the plow and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God." Luke 9: 62.
"Be not afraid; only believe." Mark 5:36.


"Behold, all things are become new." 2 Cor. 5: 17.
"Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?" Acts 9: 6

AFTER the Lord's tender plea for the presentation of our bodies has been heeded: after His mastership has been acknowledged: after conviction and struggle have given place to decision--what then?

These exerpts were taken from an article on the surrendered life and can be found here:
