Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray (a book review)

Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray is one of the most profound little books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. In this revised and updated copy, Aneko press presents a must have for every library.

Andrew Murray is a well-known evangelist and author. His books have impacted lives for generations. His book is filled with profound truths for every believer. The title of the book is also the key point in how Christians are to live in subjection to Christ. Murray tells us that in order for us to receive all God has for us, we must completely surrender ourselves to Him. As we surrender, God will work out our surrender in our lives. We must yield every part of our being to the Lordship of Christ. God accomplishes our surrender for us by the power of His Holy Spirit which indwells believers. After our complete surrender is established by the power of God, He accepts our surrender, develops it, and maintains it.

The author compares our complete surrender to a passage in the Holy Bible found in John 15:5, “I am the Vine, you are the branches. If you abide in Me and I in you, you shall bear much fruit, for without Me, you can do nothing.” The job of the vine is to provide sustenance to the branch. The branch's job is to abide in the vine, relying on it for everything it needs. So, too, is the life of the believer. As we learn to live in total dependence on Christ, He works in and through us according to His good will and pleasure.

Absolute Surrender contains step by step instructions on how a believer can learn to surrender completely to Jesus Christ. Andrew Murray says, “The condition of God’s blessing is absolute surrender of all into His hands.” He also says, “God does not ask you to give the perfect surrender in your strength, or by the power of your will; God is willing to work it in you.” To receive God’s very best blessings, doesn’t total surrender seem a small price to pay?

I hope you’ll take the time to purchase and read this powerful book. It will have a great impact on your life, I promise. It certainly did on mine.
