Part 4 of This is That

(Acts 2:12-16 NIV) Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?” Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.” Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel.
(Romans 6:13 NCV) Do not offer the parts of your body to serve sin, as things to be used in doing evil. Instead, offer yourselves to God as people who have died and now live. Offer the parts of your body to God to be used in doing good.
Surrender is God’s answer to our helplessness.
1. Give your situation to God.
(1 Peter 5:7 NIV) Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
2. Give yourself to God.
(Romans 12:1 NIV) Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
