The study my Sunday class is doing on Romans 12 is becoming an intricate part of my journey in full surrender.

God physically stops Saul’s murderous plans in his tracks and introduces him to the gospel. Through visions, God leads the right people: Ananias and Barnabas to minister to and guide Paul. Much to the surprise of everyone, including Jesus’ disciples, Paul begins passionately preaching the good news, just as passionately as he had opposed it.
How does this apply to me?
That same power is offered to all who believe. The requirements are to believe in Jesus, that he rose from the grave, and he sits at the right hand of the father. His will happens no matter what, even if he has to blind us or derail my agenda. I am to surrender to his will, above my own and his glory is revealed through becoming a living sacrifice.
“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10, KJV).
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1, KJV).
