A Jesuit priest told me about the time he was given a change of assignment. He spent the day on the train very happily moving to the new mission. When he got into the station, however, there was a telegram directing him to change trains and go to another mission. I asked him how he felt about that, if it was all right with him. He said that he accepted the change as God’s will, without question.

This is total surrender and complete obedience. When we belong to Jesus, he has the right to use us. Total surrender and complete obedience are the same thing.
