Do you ever walk into a situation and think, “Why is this so tough on me Jesus?”. This is one thing I struggle with in trying to share His word and remain true to who I am. I go into speaking His word and finding myself being judged more than usual. But the Lord tells us in James 3:1, “Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” To be so fully devoted in sharing His word and doing as He, you need realize that you must know what you’re talking about, and you must know there will be bumps in the road sometimes. But through it all, you should not become discouraged.
One step. One step is all it takes to praise Christ alone. But are you willing to make your one step an incredible one? Will you let it change your life by becoming fully devoted into praising Jesus Christ in this overly amazing life He has blessed us with? That step can be what separates you from becoming truly devoted to Him.
What do you prioritize in your life? Many people let sports, friends, relationships, and jobs be a priority over what they know is more important. The way this world is becoming, the gospel truly needs to be spread. We are here on this earth to spread the Lords word nations among nations to proceed to live with Him in Heaven to eternally worship Him, our great and powerful creator. We take all he has given us for granted; we pour our lives into objects and people rather than Jesus. These priorities are the steps we take rather than the large and incredible step to devoting our lives in Jesus Christ.
Jesus should be our number one priorities. Priorities is plural because we should do everything, EVERYTHING, through Him. The Lord died for us. He died so we could all be saved. Jesus could care less about himself, He just wanted everyone to know how great our Trinity is. For you who do not know what Trinity means, it is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The least we can do is get out and proclaim the amazing name of Jesus.
Be fully devoted in Him. Show through your actions in everything you do. Let people be able to recognize you for your love and passion of Jesus and His powerful and all incredible works. We all slip up sometimes. It’s apart of our human nature in sinning. Everyone sins. But the Lord has done so much for us that it is impossible to ever repay. What else do you believe is superior in spending your time in rather than Him?
It is impossible to be 100% to Him because only He is perfect. But in reality to be fully devoted to Him, you must give your all in everything you do. You do not need to look at other people and wish you could be like them, you should look at the Lord and strive to be like Him.
So what is it going to take? Are you afraid of judgement? Do you need some encouragement? The Lord is waiting on you, don’t waste His time. Run to Him with open arms and praise Him. His love will never fail you!
