Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Let God be God (Biblical Theology)
The resulting problem: We surrender only partially Luke 9: 57-62
‘No Lord!’ is an oxymoron in that if a person is your Lord then the only acceptable response is ‘Yes Lord’! How many of us have told God we will go where ever he sends and do whatever he asks but with reservation. Lord, I will be a missionary but please don’t send me to Africa? How much work does God have to do in our lives so that we are totally surrendered to His will?
