We should commit our lives to JESUS because you will never go wrong. You will benefit in this relationship. It’s like a marriage.
22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Just like in a marriage you need:
TRUST. We have to have complete trust in JESUS that HE will stand on HIS Word and do everything HE says HE will do. HE will. Sometimes we are the ones who don’t have enough faith to trust HIM. Because everything HE says HE will do should be the normal in our lives every day.
COMMUNICATION. This is ginormous in every relationship. We need to be talking with JESUS all the time. And don’t forget to listen to what HE’S telling you. Communication is a 2 way street. It’s so awesome to spend time with JESUS.
LOVE. How huge is the LOVE that JESUS has for us. HE suffered and died for us. ALL of us because every life matters.
We should be burning with a passion to serve JESUS and other people and not serve ourselves.
Have you ever really gone hard after something in your life? Was there ever something you wanted in life that you thought was the most important thing in your life? There was no stopping you from getting it. You would do whatever it took to get it. What if we gave that same kind of effort to going hard after JESUS? What would happen to us as individuals, as families, as a church if we made this kind of effort to pursue GOD until we really found HIM?
We need to make the miraculous the normal in our lives. We have the blessings and presence of GOD in our services. GOD has met with us in a powerful way. I can’t help but feel that there is still something more, something deeper, higher, stronger that JESUS has for us as a church.
The hungrier you get – stay that way. Watch out world, aint no stopping us now. There will be a stronger display of HIS Glory and HIS Power. There will be a more freedom in Praise and Worship because we will respond to JESUS.
Stay excited as the Word is preached. Learn to worship like the little ones do. And please don’t worry about the time. Let’s be led by the Holy Spirit and let our worship flow through this building and out to the streets like a mighty river.
Are you ready to go hard after GOD or are you satisfied with your level of commitment? What will it take for you to move to a new level of commitment? Maybe you’ve never made a commitment of any kind to JESUS. That would be the place for you to start in following after Him today.
