Product Description

Product Description

"My Lord, O King, according to thy saying, I am thine, and all that I have."
Words of absolute surrender with which every child of God ought to yield himself
to his Father. If our hearts are willing for that, there is no end to what God will
do for us, and to the blessing God will bestow.'How many times have you left a prayer
meeting or revival service determined to dedicate every area of your life to God,
only to feel frustrated and defeated a few days later? We all want to be absolutely
surrendered to God, and yet we hardly dare utter the words. We don't exactly know
how. Andrew Murray clearly and simply explains full surrender to God and shows
the way to a victorious life in Him.

About the Author

Andrew Murray (1828 1917) was a South African writer, teacher, and Christian pastor. Murray considered missions to be "the chief end of the church." Andrew pastored churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town and Wellington, all in South Africa. He was a champion of the South African Revival of 1860. In 1889, he was one of the founders of the South African General Mission (SAGM), along with Martha Osborn and Spencer Walton. After Martha Osborn married George Howe, they formed the South East Africa General Mission (SEAGM) in 1891. SAGM and SEAGM merged in 1894. Because its ministry had spread into other African countries, the mission's name was changed to Africa Evangelical Fellowship (AEF) in 1965. AEF joined with SIM in 1998 and continues to this day. He died on January 18, 1917, four months before his eighty-ninth birthday. Over the years he has influenced many, including Jessie Penn-Lewis, a key figure in the 1904-1905 Welsh Revival.

5.0 out of 5 stars See how surrender becomes victory! April 9 2004
By radical
Format:Paperback
Murray challenges us with the uncompromising truth that God calls for nothing less than our total surrender to Him, yet also comforts us with the uncompromising truth that we are powerless to do so...that we must allow God, in His grace, to do for us all that He requires. We must become nothing in ourselves so God can be everything, and only by His power can we hope to forget ourselves and come to know Him.
The text is easy to read, which makes it all the more impossible to dismiss. Absolute surrender is difficult not because we don't understand what Murray means, but because we do. Each chapter is well organized, and the book culminates with a clear account of the parable that God the Father is the Vinedresser, Jesus Christ is the Vine, the Holy Spirit is the Life of the Vine, we are the branches and the promise of the Kingdom is in the grapes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surrender and Let God Have His Way With You! Oct. 6 2003
Format:Paperback
Reading this book will help the Christian enter into a deeper maturity and understanding of a personal relationship with the Lord.
Among the many excellent points Murray mentions are:
1. God will answer our prayers if we are totally surrendered to Him.
2. We must have unbounded trust in God and His goodness.
3. God is able to pour His love into our hearts so we may in turn love others.
4. Live in the power of the Holy Spirit and not your own flesh!
5. What we cannot do, God can do!
6. The Apostle Peter had to be humbled before he was used greatly by God.
7. We must live in utter dependence and trust in God.
8. Everything will be alright when we absolutely surrender to Christ.
Read the book and be encouraged to walk deeper with Jesus!

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all! Aug. 17 2001
Format:Paperback
Like many Christians, you began in the Spirit; God wooed you from a life of sin and self, and you gave your life to Him. Yet somehow your life in Christ that began in the Spirit, you think will be perfected by your efforts. You have somehow confounded the invitation of our Savior to "Abide in Him" as a command coming forth from Mt. Sinai; i.e. something that you have to do in response to His call.
Pastor Murray gives us the simple, yet profound remedy for successful Christian living; Absolute Surrender. When we present our bodies as a living sacrifice unto God, He is able to accomplish what He promised He would do in our lives.
Nothing less than Absolute Surrender will do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-changing! June 29 2000
Format:Paperback
This book is fantastic! I have shared its message with many friends and have recommended it far and wide. This book goes deep, to the issues of the heart. While never cheapening salvation, it shows how God's grace is truly His power, and that it is needed not only at the beginning of the Christian life, but every step of the walk. Expect to be blessed!

God does not ask you to give the perfect surrender in your strength, or by the power of your will; God is willing to work it in you. Do we not read: "It is God that worketh in us, both to will and to do of his good pleasure" (Phil. 2:13)? And that is what we should seek forto go on our faces before God, until our hearts learn to believe that the everlasting God Himself will come in to turn out what is wrong, to conquer what is evil, and to work what is well-pleasing in His blessed sight. God Himself will work it in you. &quote;
