We often try to be strong in life by relying on our physical efforts: exercising, changing our diet, rearranging our finances, getting a better education, acquiring a better job, or getting married. These are all good goals, but true strength comes from “waiting on the Lord” (Isaiah 40:31). When putting God FIRST by giving Him our time and worship before anything else, He fills us with HIS strength. That strength, above anything we could do our own, is endless. It always pays to “be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might”! (Ephesians 6:10)
The ultimate sacrifice made is not for a cause but for a person. Lay your life down daily, not for Christianity, but for Jesus Christ.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1
Is Christ enough for you today? He is everything you need, spiritually and physically. When He’s enough, there’s no turning back, changing your mind, or serving anyone or anything else!
