Overview

Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray

You can! God readily offers these blessings and more. All you need to do is to take one decisive step of absolute surrender to Christ. When you forsake all to follow Him, you put the carnal life behind you and begin a new, spiritual life in obedience to the command, "Be filled with the Spirit." Through this popular devotional study, first published over a century ago, many Christians have discovered that victory over the power of sin and unbroken fellowship with Jesus are only a step away. Andrew Murray explains what surrender means and how to take this step, urging readers to yield themselves wholly, completely to God.

About the Author

ANDREW MURRAY (1828-1917) was a church leader, evangelist, and missionary statesman. As a young man, Murray wanted to be a minister, but it was a career choice rather than an act of faith. Not until he had finished his general studies and begun his theological training in the Netherlands, did he experience a conversion of heart. Sixty years of ministry in the Dutch Reformed Church of South Africa, more than 200 books and tracts on Christian spirituality and ministry, extensive social work, and the founding of educational institutions were some of the outward signs of the inward grace that Murray experienced by continually casting himself on Christ. A few of his books include The True Vine, Absolute Surrender, The School of Obedience, Waiting on God, and The Prayer Life.

I wondered what it meant to surrender or submit to God's will. It's something you hear all the time, but no one tells you how. This book helped me to discover for myself what that meant and how I could do it. We continue to think that we can do things on our own. We think that we can improve ourselves or accomplish the transformation on our own. Until we realize that we are completely dependent on God, there is no hope for truly growing closer to Him. How freeing is it to realize that I don't have to rely on myself to accomplish my sanctification. My sanctification will be accomplished by God, if I only allow Him to do the work he wants done. By surrendering to His will and submitting wholly to Him, I allow Him to accomplish His will in my life.

For many many years I have looked for answers and suggestions that would help me to know how to get closer to God, and this book has done more to do that than any book or person than I have come across, in the most simplistic way.

I longed to know how to surrender to God for many years. Through this book I have learned the steps necessary to reach beyond my "fleshly" comfort zone and reach for the hem of God's robe. Simply a must read book.

This is the very first Andrew Murray book I ever read. Since then, I've devoured about a dozen more of his titles. Absolute Surrender teaches on Romans 7-8 where we see the battle to control the carnal nature and the victory that only God can give.

This book has made a great difference in how I view my relationship with God! It simply and fully explains how to have the relationship I believe God desires to have with each of us.

I can't say much other than this book has helped change my relationship with God for the better. It feels almost as a key to understanding the true spirit of absolute surrender. Soak it up.

The single most Life-changing book I HAVE EVER READ besides the Bible.

This book came as an answer to prayer. The notion of "surrender" what that means in a practical sense, i.e., day to day living, had been something I was struggling with for quite some. Andrew Murray, the founder of the YMCA, seems to convey right from the pages of this work, with clarity and direction, that it is OK to be hesitant. Approach the Lord in prayer with a genuine, faithful heart, and let Him do the rest. "For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires." (Heb 4:16 NIV) The great thing about grace is that it is a free gift - God works that grace in us - all we need to do is be willing vessels. This book has changed, challenged, and strengthened my faith, and I've begun to see how God's grace works in my life in a whole new light. This book is clearly written to an already believing audience. It does not get deep into theological tenets, but lays out the message clearly and plainly. All you have to do is go to the Lord in prayer and let him begin to transform your heart. I highly recommend this book, and am excited to read more of Andrew Murray's other works. Glory be to God!
