THE PRINCIPLE OF SURRENDER by Chip Brogden

THE PRINCIPLE OF SURRENDER
by Chip Brogden

http://TheSchoolOfChrist.Org/articles/the-principle-of-surrender.html

When we cease doing what we cannot do, then He begins to do what we cannot. This is the fruit produced by those who are truly born again. Our works are not religious works at all, they are simply the works of Him Who now lives in us. When we cease struggling and surrender to crucifixion then He comes forth in power and glory to raise us from the dead. This is what it means to be a Christian and a disciple of Jesus.

A brother came to me who suffered from a bad habit. He had tried every means known to man to break himself from this habit. No stone was left unturned. First he tried all the "Christian" cures: prayer, fasting, binding and loosing, exorcism, positive confession. He had made vows to God and had threatened himself with dire consequences if he ever broke his vows. But break them he did.

When all these attempts to address the problem spiritually failed, he tried some psychological remedies: visualization, counseling, psychotherapy, self-help courses, motivational speakers, natural remedies, prescription drugs. He even wore a rubber band around his wrist so that he could snap it against his skin whenever his thoughts began to go astray. In this way (he had been told) the pain would interrupt his thought patterns and he would "snap" back into reality. He had red welts on his wrist from snapping the rubber band over and over. Obviously the rubber band trick wasn't working. In fact, nothing had worked. This is the condition he was in when he sought me out.
"I have tried everything, and I cannot break this habit! What else can I do?" he asked.
