GREAT QUOTES on TRUE SURRENDER

"Taking up my "cross" means a life voluntarily surrendered to God."
- A. W. Pink

"Just as water ever seeks and fills the lowest place, so the moment 
God finds you abased and empty, His glory and power flow in."
- Andrew Murray

"Oh that God would give me the thing which I long for! That... I may 
see a people wholly devoted to God, crucified to the world, and the 
world crucified to them. A people truly given up to God in body, 
soul and substance! How cheerfully would I then say, 'Now lettest 
thou thy servant depart in peace.'"
- John Wesley

"We take our stand at the cross and consent to be nailed to it, 
voluntarily, actually; to submit to the pain whereby the flesh dies; 
the hands are pierced that carnal work may no longer be done in 
the energy of the flesh; the feet are pierced that no longer we 
may walk according to the flesh; the brow is pierced with the 
thorn crown that our head may not any longer be held up for 
human diadems and fading laurel wreaths..."
- A. T. Pierson

"He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal 
claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar 
that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself."
C.S. Lewis

"If we will only surrender ourselves utterly to the Lord, and will 
trust Him perfectly, we shall find our souls "mounting up with 
wings as eagles" to the "heavenly places" in Christ Jesus, 
where earthly annoyances or sorrows have no power to disturb us."
- Hannah Whitall Smith
