Day Five: All to Jesus I Surrender

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Romans 8:31-32 (NIV) - “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

Romans 8:37-39 (NIV) - “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Paul is exclaiming at the end of chapter 8, what can we say in response to the amazing faithfulness of God? Then Paul goes into a rampage of God’s marvelous ways, how God is for us, then who can be against us? How God will give us all things! How we are more, not just, but more than conquerors, and how nothing in the existence will be able to separate us from the Love of Christ.

There is only one appropriate response. Right now, let’s worship the Lord as we surrender our hearts to Him and as we sing this song “My Heart Is Yours”. For those who are not familiar, the bridge portion of the song comes from the hymn “All to Jesus I Surrender” written by Judson W. Van DeVenter (1855-1939) and music by Winfield S. Weeden (1847-1908).

See the lyrics below:

All to Jesus I surrender,

All to Him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust Him,

In His presence daily live.

I surrender all,

I surrender all.

All to Thee, my blessed Savior,

I surrender all.

I remember singing this hymn in church as a young person during offering time when the basket was passed down the pew and I would put in my single dollar bill. There is no sweeter moment as we come forward to bring our offerings on Sundays during our worship celebration. We meet God as we surrender our lives, our hearts, our moneys and all our offerings to Him.
