Wayne Barber's Limp Coat Analogy
Wayne Barber, a renowned pastor famous for his book, Living Grace http://www.waynebarber.com/, once made an analogy about a limp coat and compared it to a sleeping Christian. Envision a coat hanging limp on a hook.
There is such joy that comes out of surrendering to Christ. Nothing feels better. It is as if nothing else matters - but what God wants for you. Surrender is truly freeing.
Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:31, "I die everyday." When he says this, he means that he dies to himself everyday and puts God's will before his wants. He disregards his own feelings and seeks God's face every single day. Grab your Bible or read this passage here: http://niv.scripturetext.com/1_corinthians/15.htm
