A Yielded Heart

“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.”

Matthew 27:50

Dear friend, what will it take for us to surrender and yield our hearts and spirit over to the control of the Master Potter to be molded into the image of Jesus? There is a price we must pay, yes “Self”, are we willing? Until this takes place the Holy Spirit will be unable to accomplish the will of the Father for our lives.  Jesus own blood was spilled out for this very purpose!  Oh, what an awesome price He paid and only a sinless Lamb could love us that much! I would like to close this devotion with a portion of a song. Let us open the door of our hearts and let the Holy Spirit cleanse it with these very intimate words of:


“Broken and Spilled Out”

His loved and his own perfect Son
Sent here to show me the love of the Father
Just for love it was done
And though you were perfect and holy
You gave up yourself willingly
You spared no expense for my pardon
You were used up and wasted for me

Broken and spilled out
Just for love of me Jesus
God’s most precious treasure
Lavished on me
Broken and spilled out
And poured at my feet
In sweet abandon
Lord you were spilled out
And used up for me
