Today's lesson continues our series about how to have an "EPIC" New Year. "E" stands for being EMPOWERED everyday by God's Holy Spirit, and that begins by totally surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ.

Much of today's lesson comes from one of our ROCK SOLID Discipleship Course lessons, all about "How do I LIVE for God? And how do I share my faith?" We're talking about the importance of living with total SURRENDER to Jesus, making Him the LORD of every area, and the importance of our personal testimony.
