Salvation, Submission, and Surrendering

Salvation is deliverance from sin and its consequences; spiritual rescue from sin and death.

Submitting to God is accepting him as the authority over your life.

Surrendering your life to God is to seek his will and purpose for your life and live your life as an offering.

Jesus was the best example of submitting and surrendering. While here on earth, He didn’t just submit to the Father’s authority, He surrendered Himself to fulfill the Father’s will and purpose. His motivation for submitting and surrendering was the same motivation for which He came to Earth in the first place: love.

Jesus submitted to the Father’s authority because He loves the Father.

He surrendered Himself to the Father’s will and fulfilled His purpose by suffering the cross because He loves YOU!

Have you received salvation by grace?  Have you submitted to the Father’s authority over your life?  Are you living the life the Father has planned for you?

About Alecia Roberts

First and foremost, I am a Christian. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I wrote The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing while my husband was working overseas as a civilian contractor. The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing is my testimony of God's amazing love, grace and power in a surrendered life and heart. It was released on May 29, 2012. I lost my middle daughter, Heather who suffered from mental illness and addiction to an overdose in October of 2015. Since then I've dedicated my life to confronting addiction and promoting changes in North Carolina that will hopefully save lives.
