In order for our hearts to overcome this half-converted state of the church in America, indeed throughout the western world, there must be a “burning of the ships” among those who follow the Lord Jesus Christ. This means that everything else must be utterly given into the hand of Jesus. That includes all of our hopes and dreams, any of our ways that are contrary to God’s ways. All of the comforts that block this full surrender to Jesus must also be laid down. Using the story of the Spanish Conquistador Hernando Cortez, Pastor Ray describes the process of burning our ships. Are you willing as an act of your will to burn all your ships and be utterly given into the hands of Jesus and let Him determine the course of your life?
