Surrender

"Your primary goal should be to live in an ongoing state of surrender, acknowledging that without the intervention of the Holy Spirit you will be defeated by the power of sin. If there is a singular theme that emerges from the entirety of Scripture, it is this: Through relationship with God, man is finally capable of doing that which he was incapable of doing on his own. That's what walking in the Spirit is all about. And that's what character is all about...Character is the by-product of dependency...Character is the will to do what is right, as defined by God, regardless of personal cost."

WOW, what a great quote. I needed to hear that today (and everyday).

Thanks, sweet friend!

**I may borrow that to put on my blog. ;) And perhaps tape it to my forehead.
