Surrendering Arms

So that is why weapons are often called "arms", because arms were in fact used as the very first weapons. This lends new meaning to lifting our arms in worship. We're surrendering our arms as weapons and receiving them back again as instruments of good through which God can work. We're going from being destructive to constructive in the act or "process" of worship. For we are not only imperfect ones in need of further improvements and refinements but we are rebels in need of handing ourselves over continually and quitting our rebellion as C.S. Lewis said. "For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness and of lawlessness -------so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness." (Romans 6 v19) And I like the idea of holiness as relational and not as an end in itself or for its own sake. Holiness understood in that light is our way of saying "I love you" back to God or our way of saying "thank you" back to Jesus for all He has done and continues to do for us, for all that He is and continues to be for us. Amen?

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
