GIVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY…


Even though today is a holiday…no school…no work…no reason to get up at the crack of dawn, my pets had me up at the regular time.

As I stood in the darkness, looking out the window at the sunrise, I was reminded of the verse in 1 Corinthians 9:19.  It says this:

1 Corinthians 9:19-27The Message (MSG)

19-23 Even though I am free of the demands and expectations of everyone, I have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people: religious, nonreligious, meticulous moralists, loose-living immoralists, the defeated, the demoralized—whoever. I didn’t take on their way of life. I kept my bearings in Christ—but I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view. I’ve become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life. I did all this because of the Message. I didn’t just want to talk about it; I wanted to be in on it!

If we expect to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ, we must first “give ourselves” completely to Him.  I sang the following song to my Savior. -anita

*******************

I give myself away

 

I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me

[Verse 1:]
Here I am
Here I stand
Lord, my life is in your hands
Lord, I’m longing to see
Your desires revealed in me
I give myself away

[Verse 2:]
Take my heart
Take my life
As a living sacrifice
All my dreams, all my plans
Lord I place them in your hands

[Chorus:)

I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
William McDowell (Lyrics)

Give yourself to Jesus today!  Let Him work in and through you in this new year!
