On Baptism Sunday, Anthony speaks about what it means to surrender your life to Christ & how RMCC aims to fulfill that mission.

Surrender

*****

To do God’s will and finish his work by equipping and mobilizing people to serve.

Romans 6:16

You are slaves to the one whom you obey – whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness.

Surrender can be a bumpy road

Surrender is simple, but not easy

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 

*****

Put down your guns and let’s start rebuilding your life together.

Surrender is every day

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation:  the old is gone, behold, the new has come! 

*****

I believe firmly that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and everything that is contrary to God's law, the Holy Spirit will fill every corner of our hearts.  But if we are full of pride and conceit and ambition and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God.  We must be emptied before we can be filled.

– D.L. Moody

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ.  It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.  The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
