Give Fully to God
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 15: 58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Observation: I want to give myself fully to the Lord and I start out each day praying and asking God to use me to do His work. Almost immediately however I start thinking of me. Now I’m struggling with outreach I oversee each year. No one has asked me to help and I’m not volunteering. My pride is hurt and now if they ask I want to refuse. Is this giving myself to the work of the Lord?
Application: I need to give myself fully to what God wants of me, stop being selfish and prideful and make a sacrifice of the time God has given me to glorify Him.
Prayer: Dear Lord help me overcome this feeling of laziness. Open my heart to you and others. May I always be ready to serve in glory to you.
