Whether you are a new or seasoned Christian, insights shared in Surrender will prompt you to look deeper into your life motives. How do you discern if your will is interfering with God's will? How do you know if you are offering all of yourself so God can use you in ways you could never imagine? How do you humble yourself so that others can step up and serve more effectively?
Wayne Schmidt transparently shares stories of his life's offering plate moments, those life-changing times when he surrendered his will to follow God's will. You will learn through his words the difficulties and rewards experienced when he placed himself, his ego, his plans into God's plan for God's glory.

When I saw the synopsis of this book, I knew I wanted to read it and called to order it right away. I am so glad I did. I was hooked from the moment I started reading. Our careers took different paths but I could relate to his questioning whether God was calling him into ministry or whether it was his grandmother. In my case, it was not my grandmother but there were folks in my home church who were ready to tell me what God wanted to do with my life. Looking back through the years, I would say Dr. Schmidt had a wise grandmother but more importantly, he had someone in his life who could help him understand the importance of surrendering to God and the potential fallout if he did not. I appreciate how he has been vulnerable to share his life experiences when he was faced with decisions that required him to again surrender to God. Many of us in the Wesleyan-Armenian tradition have been taught that we get saved and sanctified and we are on our way. When major hurdles arise in our pathway, we start questioning. As Wayne Schmidt explains, it is not a once and done deal but a continuing life of surrender to God. Using eight "offering plate moments" as he calls them, he shares times when he was faced with an opportunity to surrender to God and how that played out. In the chapter following each of these stories, he uses key verses from Romans 12 to reflect so the reader can apply the truth from God to his or her own life. Although we are never too old to learn, I especially recommend this book for young people who are starting their Christian journey and to every person preparing for the ministry. As a matter of fact, I think it would benefit every Christian to read it.
