Surrender

Episode Summary

Surrender is a funny word; often associated with defeat and weakness. Thankfully, these don’t apply in our case. When we surrender to Jesus, we receive the reward which He secured for us. Nothing defeated but death, and nothing weak but its power over us.

Episode Notes

Surrender

Your Words for 2020

Here it is, the first word for the New Year. As you may know, we are spending the next several weeks meditating on your words for 2020. This week’s word is Surrender.

Surrender is a funny word; often associated with defeat and weakness. Thankfully, these don’t apply in our case. When we surrender to Jesus, we receive the reward which He secured for us. Nothing defeated but death, and nothing weak but its power over us.

Do you live from the foundation that you have been fully forgiven? If not, it’s time to stop striving to achieve something that is already yours. Jesus died as you, not for you.

My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and dispenses his life into mine! - Galatians 2:20 (TPT)

And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness. - Ephesians 4:24 (TPT)

Blessing each and every one of you to enter into the beautiful union which Christ established for us!

See you next week. There’s still time to submit your words, so send them to us at hello@cultivateconnection.com
