"Surrender" is a word often associated with battle. But what does it mean for Christians to surrender in a spiritual sense? Princeton University's WordNet addresses some of the connotations of "surrender" that fit the Christian use:
- "Yield" (to Christ)
- "Deliver" (hand over ourselves and our lives to God. "We are thine, O Lord")
- "Relinquish control" (to our Savior)
Miriam's Well says "The Law of Surrender is that all Power comes from above."
