“Jesus Christ is always unyielding to my claim to my right to myself. The one essential element in all our Lord’s teaching about discipleship is abandon, no calculation, no trace of self-interest.”
The eternal struggle of man. Letting go of our will is the single hardest thing a Christian will do and is what holds us back from a deep and complete understanding of the Father.
“Have you deliberately committed your will to Jesus Christ? It is a transaction of the will, not of emotion”
To decide to submit, does not mean we won’t doubt or be unsure at times. It means we have willingly decided that God has the reins. To recognize our own will, and put it aside takes will, determination, and is the mark of Christian maturity. Not many are truly able to do this.
