Do we belong to God, manifesting the new life He has given us? Or do we still think we belong to ourselves?
Are we willing to do His will every moment of each day? Or do we pick and choose which directives from Him we heed?
Do our friends reflect His nature? Or do we surround ourselves with those whose characters haven’t been changed into His likeness?
Do the words which come out of our mouths reflect Him who is enthroned in our hearts? Or do our words reflect our own self-centered interests and views?
Do we focus our eyes outward, looking for areas where our King may want us to serve? Or are we so caught up in our own dramas, that we don’t recognize others’ needs?
Let’s look at our lives. Who do we truly belong to - God or ourselves?
If we find ourselves lacking, may we again give ourselves completely to Him who loves us beyond measure.
So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Heavenly Father, I give myself to You, my Creator. In Jesus' name. Amen.
