Continuing on from yesterday's post, here is another thought I've been pondering on "The Art of Surrender".
"There is a moment of surrender and a process of surrender. The moment of surrender is the surrender of the will to personal belief in Jesus, that He is the crucified Savior who forgives sin. It is the moment of faith. It happens in an instant of time.
The process of surrender is the lifelong, daily crucifying of the human will -the will of the flesh-over and over and over again. It is surrender and resurrender and re-resurrender. It is a "process" because we surrender our will at the foot of the cross, but then we take it back up again. Surrender is an art."- Walking With Christ in the Details of Life, Patrick M. Morley, p. 111
