Commitment versus Surrender

Just finished reading an email sent by Loren Dorlig. It included an article by Bob Butler. The central question posed by the article is whether we are committed to Christ or surrendered to Christ. He makes a big difference between the two. When we are committed, we are still the one in control. We make the decisions and we decide how far we will go. Surrender means that we have no control. It all belongs to Jesus. Our responsibility in surrender is to follow Him where He leads, to do what He says, and to be what He wants us to be. It is an interesting concept that challenged my thinking. I will try to put it in the Torch over the next month or so.
