This song is about surrender. In my study along the lines of this topic, I was struck by a couple simple truths that I wanted to surface with this little tune.
First of all, I wanted to clarify that the surrender of our lives to God are not glorious moments where we display this awesome sacrifice of our precious vessel to God. In all reality, we are handing Him broken clay pots. It is not that we are ornate or priceless pieces of pottery. Yet we sometimes celebrate the surrender of someone’s life as though it is. Honestly, the things that should fire us up is that God would want us! The fact that He is fired up about taking us and using us is truly amazing and astounding! Sometimes I think we tend to get that backward.
Secondly, the song seeks to point out the wonderful truth that our surrender is not our loss and God’s gain. When I give it all to Him, I never lose anything! There is truly a peace that can’t be explained when I lay it all on the altar. God is SO good!
