Surrender to Christ


Calling the Disciples, by He Qi

This week’s gospel is the call of the disciples.  Jesus calls to us too, and following Jesus means leaving our own agendas and plans behind.  Following Jesus always involves some measure of surrender to God-in-Christ.  Our friends who know 12-Step programs know this as Step 3: “to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.”  But a healthy spiritual surrender doesn’t render us robot-like.  Read more about spiritual surrender in the writings of Thomas Merton.
