As I have stated in my article on “The Full Surrender” in the Bible Basics Section of our site, once you enter into a real full surrender with the Lord where He is now the One who will be guiding and directing your life in the specific directions that He will want it to go in – one of the things that you will have to get settled in your mind is that this will be a full surrender to the death.
There is absolutely no turning back once you enter into God’s perfect plan and destiny for your life.
As you will see in this next Scripture verse, the Bible is telling us that we have to “continue in the grace of God” – no matter how bad and rough things may get from time to time. God has a personal finish line that each person has to reach before they will be called home to be with Him for all of eternity.
As a result, God will always continue to give you His grace and power as you continue on in your walk with Him as long as you are staying in this full surrender with Him.
His grace will not only give you the power and ability to accomplish all of your divine missions for Him, but that same grace will also help keep you properly preserved and in one piece until you reach your personal finish line in Him.
Here is the verse where Paul is telling his followers to always continue in the grace of God for their lives.
“Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.” (Acts 13:43)
The Bible tells us that Jesus Himself is the author and finisher of our faith. What this means is that not only will God start the story of your life in Him, but He will also make sure to properly finish it for you before you depart from this life to be with Him for all of eternity. God’s grace will take you all the way to the end of your life as long as you are willing to stay in the game with Him.
