Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Surrender

The Rev. J. Alexander Clark, a Scotch missionary from Africa, told a very striking story of an African who had been mauled by a lioness and was well-nigh dead. Mr. Clark cared for his wounds, and when he got well he left. After three months he came back to Mr. Clark, and said, “You know the law of the African forest, that the redeemed belongs to the redeemer. I was dead, but I am now alive. I am yours. Here are my six wives and my children and my cattle; do with me as you will.” Are we willing to surrender all to Christ like that? The secret of our lack of power and service is just this-we do not acknowledge that we, the redeemed, belong to the Redeemer.
