"But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God."
Acts 20:24

One definition of the word “abandon” is to give oneself over without reservation … holding nothing back. For example, a person who jumps out of a plane “abandons” himself to his parachute. Same with a bungee cord. In Acts chapter 20, we find the Apostle Paul saying farewell to the church in Ephesus. Although he knew hardship, persecution, and danger were in his future, he informed the believers that he was “abandoned” – totally sold out and surrendered – to God. He had placed his life into God’s hands, and in this abandonment, he found security. 

Are you abandoned to God and His purpose and plan for your life? I can guarantee that His hands are much more reliable than any parachute or bungee cord, and that your life experiences will be much more exciting. So abandon yourself – sell out – surrender! God’s hands await you.
