 Yielding -Chambers

[img]http://www.sermonindex.net/images/myutmost.gif[/img]

. . . you are that one’s slaves whom you obey . . .
—Romans 6:16

The first thing I must be willing to admit when I begin to examine what controls and dominates me is that I am the one responsible for having yielded myself to whatever it may be. If I am a slave to myself, I am to blame because somewhere in the past I yielded to myself. Likewise, if I obey God I do so because at some point in my life I yielded myself to Him.

If a child gives in to selfishness, he will find it to be the most enslaving tyranny on earth. There is no power within the human soul itself that is capable of breaking the bondage of the nature created by yielding. For example, yield for one second to anything in the nature of lust, and although you may hate yourself for having yielded, you become enslaved to that thing. (Remember what lust is— "I must have it now," whether it is the lust of the flesh or the lust of the mind.) No release or escape from it will ever come from any human power, but only through the power of redemption. You must yield yourself in utter humiliation to the only One who can break the dominating power in your life, namely, the Lord Jesus Christ. ". . . He has anointed Me . . . to proclaim liberty to the captives . . ." ( Luke 4:18 and Isaiah 61:1 ).

When you yield to something, you will soon realize the tremendous control it has over you. Even though you say, "Oh, I can give up that habit whenever I like," you will know you can’t. You will find that the habit absolutely dominates you because you willingly yielded to it. It is easy to sing, "He will break every fetter," while at the same time living a life of obvious slavery to yourself. But yielding to Jesus will break every kind of slavery in any person’s life.

[b]This is a 'must read'[/b].

I've proved what he says is true...... It would be mean to give you only a quote, when the whole three paragraphs is a proper gem.

Thank God for this!!

I don't know what is up with March, but Chambers has been laying it out hard these past few days... My Utmost has been working on me pretty good.

In His,

This reading is a must for those who are concerned about antimomianism and respond by calling us back to the LAW.

Really,there is no such thing as "doing what you feel like" if you are not submitted to the Law of the Spirit. You do what you are enslaved to - the law of the flesh.

No one is like a kite without a string. The sting is attached to something.
