There are three conversions necessary: the conversion of the heart, mind, and the purse.
Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt. Send me where Thou wilt. Work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.
The gospel of Christ… is not something we can survey like the goods in a department store, picking and choosing articles from it we like. It is all one parcel—it is the breaking in of a kingdom of absolute rule and government. The only way we can receive it is by turning away from all that has previously been occupying us and taking it in entirely.
Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will really be yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.
