Give up is learning what it means to surrender our will to God on a daily basis (Galatians 2:20). Give in is giving into the calling God has placed over your life (2 Peter 1:3, Ephesians 4:1-3). Give out is the priilege of serving the Lord, being a blessing to others, and allowing His life to flow through us. Message delivered 11/29/15.
