What it Means to be Yielded


by Travis Bryan III
What Does It Mean to be “yielded”?

“Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.” Romans 6:13

“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16

“I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.” Romans 6:19

Rom 6:13, 16 KJV.  When your life is truly yielded in this way, then your life, like rich earth soil, will yield a crop of blessing, and you will be fulfilled.
