That I must die to myself and suffer loss and pain and that such a death might be participation with Christ in a redemptive mystery goes against the grain of the independent self reliant spirit and the “me first” character of our times
The power that comes from surrender is unequalled… Thank you for your awesome post!
Have a blessed Easter,
Mary… “the power that comes from surrender is unequaled” – yes that is the most important point of it all, and I left that out! I think we only understand that as we finally let go. Your life is a witness to such power. Thank you, Mary!
Thank you for this post and all your posts, Loretta. You have such a gift for using words that move deeply into one’s heart and soul. I struggle with surrender and sacrifice, as I’m sure everyone does.
Thank you for your faithful ministry and may Easter bring you deep joy and healing.
Thank you Carol! Your words encourage me. I think if surrendering was something we didn’t struggle with, it wouldn’t be surrendering. 🙂 Many blessings to you dear sister. I hope some day our paths cross again.
Appreciate your bllog post
Thanks, Grant. I wrote that 22 years ago. I am still preaching in one way or another that same “sermon.” Learning how to die, how to deny the self is an ongoing journey for me. Peace and joy to you in your dying and rising. Loretta Ross
