The Gift of Full Commitment and Dedication to the Lord
Matthew 22:37 reads: " Jesus replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.’ (the Living Bible)
Currently, I am doing a series of messages for this holiday season entitled, "The Gift of..." Our first gift was The Gift of Forgiveness. The second gift was the Gift of Encouragement.
Today, I want you to consider the Gift of Full Commitment and Dedication to the Lord. To love God with your heart, soul, and mind is to love Him first and foremost above all. Then it is to love Him with your will, your affections, and your understanding. We must love Him with our vitality, our sensitivities, and our intellect. We must love Him with everything we are. When we do, our actions will prove our commitment to Him. Our love for Him must be sincere and not in word and tongue only.
This world needs to see fully committed and dedicated Christians who love the Lord God with all that they are; words, deeds, and lifestyles. This Christmas season give the gift of Full Commitment and Dedication to the God who first loved you.
Romans 5:8 "But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (the Amplified Bible)
