It’s the number one priority of your life! Honor and glorify Jesus Christ with all that you have. It’s no longer your life, but His to do what pleases Him.
It’s always the priority, or at least it should be . . . even if you don’t feel like it . . . even if you have a different plan . . . even when it makes no sense!
You have to get out of the way! Let all your opinions go! Let all your ideas and preferences go! Clear the way for the Holy Spirit to prepare you to be acceptable, to be transformed into a bride the Father will want to present to His Son.
Maybe you’re not quite ready to surrender that much to the Lord. You’d like to have a little say in what goes on in your life, . . . maybe hang on to a few of those earthly pleasures and avoid anything that brings too much pain.
Anything we give up, or have to endure is nothing compared to what Jesus Christ went through to secure us. Jesus gave up everything for the furtherance of the Kingdom! When He left Heaven to live and die on this earth, His commitment superseded His opinions, His preferences, His feelings, and even His rights. He could’ve protested!
I’m not guilty! I don’t deserve this cruelty! It hurts too much!
But He didn’t! He didn’t because He wanted to secure you and me, and whosoever will call on Him, to be His bride for all eternity.
But the Father won’t allow a bride that’s not worthy of His Son. Tune in to this podcast episode if you’re not sure where you stand. Ask yourself: Is there anything I’m doing to hinder the Spirit of God from accomplishing His work in me? Is there something in my flesh hindering what needs to be done?
Surrender to the Lord! Don’t hinder the process! The moment you see Jesus, face to face, it will be worth it all for you, and for Him!
