child-handThere is a Gospel that is very popular in many Christian Churches, even in some of the most conservative, and that is that Christ will save us in our sins and that we don’t need to surrender anything, just believe and you will be Justified. Is this the real Gospel or is it only half of a Gospel? The Book of Jude calls those people who preach this Gospel as ungodly and that we need to be concerned for them:

Jude 3-4 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Absolute surrender is not a new Gospel, in fact it has been preached throughout the ages, from the pages of the Bible, the Reformers of the reformation, Andrew Murray in the 1840’s, Jones & Waggoner in the 1890’s, and a few faithful people around the world seeking the return of the Heavenly Saviour. It is such powerful truth where Jesus does not leave you as you are but He wants to save you from your sins (Matthew 1:21), all He requires is absolutely surrender and not just for His sake but for ours as well. One thing we must realise is that we cannot surrender anything of our own strength, as our carnal nature (not sin) will always lead us to sin (James 1:14-15). What we need is a saviour, we need someone human and yet divine, someone who was tempted in all parts as we are (Hebrews 4:15), yet knows how to overcome the strongest temptation and selfish desires and can teach (1 Peter 2:21) and give us strength to surrender all.
