“. . . now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.” – Romans 6:19
After a splendid victory at sea, Lord Nelson confronted the French admiral who was surrendering. Dressed in all his regalia, the admiral approached Nelson to surrender.
With his sword swinging by his side, the admiral put out his hand to the British commander.
Lord Nelson stepped back and said, “Your sword first.”
There are a lot of people who think they can walk up and glad-hand the Lord Jesus Christ. He says, “Your sword first.” Surrender first! Jesus is not an appeaser, and He will never make a truce with sin. Never! We have to abdicate the throne. We have to surrender.
Read Romans 6. Count the number of times the word “yield” is written. What does Paul want us to yield?
