Altar Vision: Surrender

Decoration image for quotation

If our Lord insisted on our obedience, He would simply become a taskmaster and cease to have a real authority. He never insists on obedience, but when we truly see Him we will instantly obey Him. Then He is easily Lord of our life, and we live in adoration of Him from morning till night. The level of my growth in grace is revealed by the way I look at obedience. We should have a much higher view of the word obedience, rescuing it from the mire of the world.
