"Are you willing to surrender yourselves absolutely into His hands?"
Absolute surrender is the goal of the faithful Christ follower—to live a life grafted into the very heart of God—but this pursuit is entirely counterintuitive to human nature and the innate longing for absolute control. Therefore, the journey towards surrender is often marked by struggle, shortcomings, and failure. What is the secret, then, to true surrender?
In Absolute Surrender, Andrew Murray provides a practical path towards complete surrender to the way and the will of Jesus. This path leads to a life of self-sacrifice and humility—yes—but even more so, to a life of freedom and abundance, marked by the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit, and therefore to a life of goodness, kindness, patience, peace, joy, and love.
Much of Andrew Murray's (1828-1917) published writing was an extension of his work as a pastor in South Africa, and his dozens of books and pamphlets reflect his unshakable desire to draw people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. In these pages, Murray speaks from experience, as a man who wrestled with how to abandon himself to God’s will, who repeatedly gave his life for the sake of the Church, and who came face-to-face with God’s wondrous and boundless love through this very pursuit of absolute surrender.
In this this collection of short addresses, Andrew Murray reminds the believer that the humble and powerful act of surrendering one’s life wholly to God releases:
- Intimacy with God
- Abundant life
Absolute surrender is not impossible. In fact, it is the very aspiration that carries the power to fulfill the freedom, abundance, and intimacy that God promises to those who follow Him. Absolute Surrender will light the way. The question is not, “Is it possible?” The question is, “Are you willing?”
