Absolute Surrender develops an understanding of the need for "absolute surrender" to God. Murray provides concrete steps for bringing about such surrender in one's life. He also describes both the fruit of surrendering, e.g. true experience of the Holy Spirit in one's life, and the different "stages" one goes through on the "path to Christian liberty." Anyone not fully experiencing Christian liberty will be enriched by Absolute Surrender.
The Read & Reflect with the Classics edition of Absolute Surrender includes the classic text in an easy to read adaption coupled with personal reflection questions, additional study questions, and prayer prompts for today's Christian reader.
This book is different from most books on raising children. It is a plea for the parents to truly know and walk with God – for them to love God and His Word. In the correct order, focusing first on the parents, Andrew Murray then urges parents to sincerely and consistently love their children and in all tenderness and gentleness teach them as God also teaches us.
Children are a most precious gift that we receive from God, and they deserve our very best. Our faithful training will not be lost on our children; this is a promise found over and over again in the Scriptures. If our hearts are right towards God and our children, the world's influence will not impact our children. We can and must exercise faith, so our children and our children's children will be able to impact the world for Christ and inherit eternal blessings.
A few of the parenting topics covered in this book:
· * What sin did to the family and how to redeem that which was lost.
· * The distinct and also shared roles of fathers and mothers.
· * How and why to teach children manners.
· * How to show children the Scriptures in a way that takes root in the heart.
· * How to teach with a quiet, gentle spirit, as God teaches us.
· * How to intercede effectively in prayer for our children.
What were the secrets behind the prayer life of Jesus? Jesus gathered His disciples around Him and shared with them all they needed to know. Murray beckons us to join the disciples encircled around Jesus. He guides us deep into the heart of Christ’s teachings on prayer, inviting us to enter more fully into the mysterious beauty and spectacular power of prayer.
