Closer: Relinquishment

As we seek to grow closer to God, spiritual disciplines help us focus and make room for God in our lives. We’ve talked about making sure our worship is only to God; worshipping Him not what He does. When our worship is in the proper place, we can be open to hearing and meditating on His Word and seeing how and where God is working in, through, and around us.

But it doesn’t stop there. Jesus says if we are to follow Him, we must be willing to lay ourselves down. This means confessing and repenting of sin, laying our burdens down, and surrendering to Christ.

Letting go is not easy to do, but as we accept Christ as Savior we also must accept Him as Lord.
