UNWILLING TO YIELD
By A. W. Tozier
Do not let any part of your bodies become tools of
wickedness, to be used for sinning; but give yourselves
completely to God--every part of you--for you are back
from death and you want to be tools in the hands of God,
to be used for his good purposes. Romans 6:13
I know there are people who hear me preach regularly,
who will never consider changing their way of living.
They will go "underground" before they will do that!
Our situation is not an isolated case. There are millions
of men and women with an understanding of the
revelation of God in Jesus Christ, who are still not willing
to receive and commit themselves to Him whom the very
angels and stars and rivers receive. They hesitate and they
delay because they know God is asking the abdication of
their own selfish little kingdom and interests.
This is the tragedy of mankind, my brethren! We have
rejected Him from our lives because we must have our
own way. But until Jesus Christ is sincerely received,
there can be no knowledge of salvation, nor any
understanding of the things of God.
The little, selfish, sinful man rejects the Son of God.
While he is still enumerating the things he deserves, the
Son of God stands outside.
My brethren. I repeat: this is the great tragedy of
Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.
