And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.” Matthew 26:39 KJV
We see how our Master Jesus surrendered to God’s will by allowing His will to be consumed by that of God. Jesus denied Himself from what He wants to do in order for God’s will to take preeminence over Him. It was His choice to do that.
If you read the above text, you can say: “well its Jesus that’s why He could do that.” Well Jesus was just 100% human as you and I.
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” Philippians 2:7 KJV
So Jesus Christ our Lord was just like us. The Bible says: “…was made in the likeness of men” (Read Hebrews 2:14).
The question is how did He do it? So that we can do same. Here is the secret!
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Hebrews 9:14 KJV
So Jesus Christ our Lord could only accomplish His task with the help of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says: “… who through the eternal Spirit offered (surrendered ) himself… “
All the little things that God Almighty is telling you to do, as you yield to do it, The Holy Spirit will help you. And you will accomplish same results and even do more than our Lord Jesus Christ accomplish while on earth (Read John 14:12).
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Help me through Your Spirit to surrender to Your grace in Jesus Name. Amen
