The Heart of Worship is Surrender

The heart of worship is surrender.

Romans 6:13 (TEV) Give yourselves to God…surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purposes.

Surrender has negative connotations because it sounds like we are “giving up” or have “lost.”

Three barriers that block our total surrender to God: fear, pride, and confusion.

We need to answer these three questions:

  1. Can I trust God? the more you realize how much God loves you, the easier surrender becomes. “Love casts out all fear.”
  2. Can I admit my limitations? We don’t want to admit we’re just creatures and not in real control.
  3. What does it really mean to surrender? it’s not passive acceptance but active sacrificing your own wishes and walk for God’s.
