The power to surrender

Pete Porter has posted strong advice at Brian's Nonsense about surrendering to the will of God. Here's a sample:
The ability to give ourselves to the will of some-one else can only be done one way. In love. Love is the only thing stronger than survival. Where there is love there is self-sacrifice, to the object of that love. This love comes from the knowing of the person who is loved. Not in a theory, but in a fact. By introduction and experience. With understanding and full acceptance of the worthiness of the person.
Thanks, Pete, for showing very simply the relationship between love, knowledge, and surrender in obedience to our Lord.
