The ultimate paradox of the Christian life is that victory comes through surrender. Most of us aspire to a life of abandonment to God and his purposes, but we find the daily grind and our own old habits get in the way. Jesus knew he set the bar high, but he didn't leave us without guidance. In these six sessions, you'll learn from his teaching and example the character qualities essential to a life of worshipful surrender.
