Episode Notes:

Following Jesus involves surrender. But what is surrender? That’s what we’re studying all this week on The New You.

Surrender is a Decision to be HUMBLE (Mat. 11:25).

  1. Jesus rebuked those whose knowledge of spiritual truth is limited only to what they can discover with their own intelligence – those who are ultimately dependent on human wisdom.
  2. Their sin was not their intellect, but their intellectual pride (cf. Pharisees, rabbis, and scribes).
  3. The things of God are not accessible through human wisdom or clever reasoning (1 Cor. 2:9).
  4. Jesus’ point is not that God withheld the truth from intelligent people, but that those who rely on their own cleverness cut themselves off from the truth (cf. 1 Cor. 1:26-31).
