Be Strong: Becoming a Dangerous and Daring Disciple

Phil Wade : 1 Peter 5 : Be Strong

We have to practice surrender rather than commitment. Our surrender should be conceding control, yielding, or turning things in our lives over to the Lord. Throughout Scripture, we are given examples of obedience and disobedience, faith and trust in self. Jonah and Mary give us a glimpse into our own hearts that Christ Jesus is fighting a battle for. Always take the posture of Mary, “Let it be according to the Lord.” For, as Galatians 2:20 reminds us, we are now crucified with Christ and now live by faith!
