What does surrender look like? It can be a moment of great shame and humiliation, but it doesn’t have to be.
It is completely different when we surrender to God and His will for our lives. An unbelievable sense of freedom and peace accompanies being in God’s will.
Surrendering to God is not acknowledging defeat so much as it is acknowledging that God’s plan for our lives is better than our plans. The Bible tells us “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Surrendering to God is acknowledging that we have fallen short of God’s standard and the punishment for that is eternal separation from God. Since every person born sins, the punishment God mandates applies to all men (and women). When Christ died for us He paid the price for our sins. This sacrifice opens the way to a restored life now and eternally.
It can be difficult to acknowledge our wrongdoings and ask for forgiveness. It can be humiliating and even shameful to consider, but it shouldn’t be. God’s grace is so vast we can not conceive it. There is absolutely nothing you have done that surprises God. His grace and acceptance are unconditional once you accept Jesus.

2. REPENT and be willing to turn from your sin.
3. BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose again.
4. RECEIVE, through prayer, Jesus Christ into your heart and life.
5. Commit to living the rest of your life for Him.
Christ Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in” (Revelation 3:20).
