Surrender It All
by Billy Graham

Among young and old alike, we need a change—a spiritual change, a moral change. God calls on all of us to make a total surrender to His Son Jesus Christ.

Have you ever surrendered yourself unconditionally to Christ? Have you ever given Him your mind and your body and your will? When you come to Christ, that’s just the beginning because you must live for Him. And in living for Him, that means that the dominant feature of your life will be love. Whatever the color of someone’s skin, you love them. You go out of your way to be friends with people of another race. That’s how you love.

I hope that you will say, “I receive Jesus in my heart. I trust Him. I know that I’m going to go to Heaven because of Him. I know my sins are forgiven because of Him, and I’m ready to die for Him.” Will you do that?

Prayer
Dear God, may I never hold anything back from You. Amazingly, You held nothing back from me, but gave Your only Son as a ransom for my sin. Help me surrender everything to You, to follow You wholeheartedly. Take my life and make it all that You want it to be. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
