Never let the fire in your heart go out. Keep it alive. Serve the Lord. When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful.
Romans 12:11-12 (NIRV)
Begin 2015 with a period of consecration is that God’s will may be done in our lives. The Bible says, “Now the God of peace. . . make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in His sight, THROUGH JESUS CHRIST….”Hebrews 13:20, 21
It is really the Lord Jesus who does God’s will. The Gospels tell us how the Lord Jesus did His Father’s will when He lived here on earth. The book of Acts tells us how He continued to do the Father’s will through the apostles and disciples of that day. Now, the Lord Jesus wants to work through us to do God’s will. To do this, He needs us to offer our bodies to Him as a living sacrifice.
The Lord Jesus has no hands to do God’s work here on earth except our hands. He has no feet to take God’s message to the lost except our feet. He has no lips to tell men of God’s salvation except our lips.
When we give ourselves completely to the Lord Jesus, He will work through us even as the Father worked through Him. He loves us and wants to give you and me an abundant life.
So take some time for prayer, fasting, solitude and seek the Lord for 2015, and have a happier new year.
