I'll Stand -- Completely Surrendered

Hillsong United produces some amazing Christian worship songs.

In their song I’ll Stand, the chorus states,

     So what can I say?
     What can I do?
     But offer this heart O God
     Completely to You

In response to the amazing love of God, what can we do? In response to the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for us, what can we do? In response to the stunning reality that God chose us to be his sons and daughters, what can we do?

We can offer our hearts completely to him. We can give all of us to him. We can live fully for the glory of God.

The bridge states,

     So I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned
     In awe of the One who gave it all
     So I’ll stand, my soul Lord to You surrendered
     All I am is Yours

How does a Christian live? We worship. We abandon all for Jesus. We stand in awe of our almighty God. We surrender all for him. We give up our will and our way and we completely pursue his way. We declare that all that we have is his.

We live the greatest commandment, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37)
