Give Your Life to Jesus!.

“[…] but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. Romans 6:13b NIV

We love to say these simple words “give your life to Jesus” to people we want to bring to the salvation of Jesus Christ.

However we fail to realize that most of us who claim to be born-again Christians, haven’t really taken these first steps that we encourage the unbelievers to accept.

Jesus came to give His life for us as the ultimate love gesture to humankind. As a love response to that, we usually decide to live our lives for Him as well.

But he didn’t go through all the suffering so that we will only live our lives for Him.

No He gave His life for us that we might give our lives TO Him.

As long as you only live for Him, it’s like driving a car with God in the passenger’s seat and you behing the steering-wheel. You might ask Him from time to time for direction but most of the time you choose your speed and you turn where you want to.

When we give our lives to Him, that life is not ours anymore. And God can do whatever He wants with it. He takes the wheel and steers it as He chooses to.

As difficult as it is to give up the control of our lives, it is our ultimate gesture of love to Him.

‘Lord Jesus, I have acknowledged that You came and died for me and that You rose up on the third day. I know You are my Lord and Saviour. And now I choose to give You my life. Do as You wish with it. I trust You with all my heart.’ Amen

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” (Romans 12:1 NIV)

Wishing you a Blessed Week!

I have told you this, that His joy may remain in you and that your joy may be full! (John 15:11)
