Friend, there is nothing in this life I have ever wanted that comes even remotely close to the love, peace, hope, joy, relationship, kindness, care, fulfillment, beauty, magnificence, majesty, loveliness, rest, purpose, friendship, excitement, happiness, satisfaction, and contentment found in the Lord Jesus Christ, in an intimate forever relationship with Him, and than living totally sold out to Him and to fulfilling His will for my life.
Hold nothing back from Jesus, friend. Let go of everything and everyone He by His Spirit through His Word leads you to let go.
Be totally sold out to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Give up everything He wants you to surrender.
Will it be painful to your flesh to let go of what you crave? To what you hunger and thirst for in the way of earthly pleasure? To your strong, strong desires? Yes, oh yes, yes it will! It hurts to say no to our flesh! To deny ourselves what we yearn for in the way of worldly wishes, ways, and wants.
But nothing, absolutely nothing on this earth, nothing and nobody can possibly compare with the awesomeness and wondrousness and gloriousness and amazingness of Jesus Christ and being in His forever fellowship and drawing ever closer to Him and Him to us and striving breath by breath to bring pleasure, joy, honor, love, praise, worship and glory to His holy most wonderful blessed almighty everlasting name, oh yes!
Be totally, totally His forever and ever, AMEN!
Father, dear Father, help us to surrender all to you! Help us to be totally sold out to you! Help us to live totally yielded to you! Father, so many I meet call themselves Christians but don’t know the wonderfulness of having an intimate, personal relationship with you. They are more interested in the things of this temporal life than they are learning of you and from you and being totally surrendered to you.
Teach them the way of a surrendered life. Give them the hunger and passion and fervor to believe in and to love you and to follow you with every ounce of their hearts, oh yes, AMEN!
“And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”” Revelation 5:13
