Total Commitment to Jesus

 

‘It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.’ Galatians 2:20 NAS

When sailors first learned to navigate the seas by using the stars, a whole new world opened up to them. A common saying in those days was, ‘Whoever is a slave to the compass enjoys the freedom of the open sea.’ Make a total commitment to let Christ be your compass in life. Consult Him on every step you take. Let Him set your course and He will direct you to places of freedom and fulfilment you never knew existed. Be willing to say, like Paul, ‘It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.’ (Galatians 2:20 NKJV)

Alice Cooper created shockwaves in the rock world when he became a Christian. ‘It doesn’t matter how many drugs I take,’ he said, ‘I’m not fulfilled. This isn’t satisfying. There’s a spiritual hunger going on. Everybody feels it. If you don’t feel it now, you will. Trust me. You will… Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that’s a tough call. That’s the real rebellion.’ He understood what it means to be committed to Jesus.

CS Lewis wrote, ‘To love and admire anything outside yourself is to take one step away from utter spiritual ruin; though, we shall not be well so long as we love and admire anything more than we love and admire God.’

So, are you ready to kneel at the feet of Jesus today? To say, ‘I am nothing; You are everything. Here are my gifts, my resources and my dreams. I lay them at Your feet. I give them all to You, holding nothing back.’ And if you’ve never turned over your life to Him but are ready now, see the prayer at vision180.org.au/you-need-jesus/
