Topic: Dedication: Commitment to the Cause of God
[Seeds of Destiny 28 March 2019 Devotional]
You cannot really encounter Jesus and not be on fire to do something for God.
SCRIPTURE: And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. Acts 9:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot really encounter Jesus and not be on fire to do something for God.
Dedication to God is a major obligation of every genuine child of God. It is the pathway to fulfilling destiny. God created us for a purpose; His desire for our lives is for us to become all that He created us to be on the Earth.
Now, one pathway to fulfilling God’s purpose for our lives is living a life of dedication to God. Therefore, it is very important to understand what dedication is all about.
Dedication to God means commitment to the cause of God on the earth.
Now, what does it mean to be committed to the cause of God on Earth?
i. Brutal commitment to kingdom assignment
Commitment to the cause of God on the Earth means brutal commitment to Kingdom assignment (1 Samuel 17:29). When a person is dedicated to God, there is a die-less commitment to the purpose of God on the earth. A dedicated person has a die-less and brutal commitment to Kingdom agenda and the purpose of God on the earth. This means that God cannot be working and they are standing idly by without doing anything. Dedicated people cannot be onlookers in the house of God.
Let me give you a practical example: When I rededicated my life to Christ in those days, I went to a fellowship on campus for the first time and began to clean the chairs; I swept the place and then stood at the entrance of the building and began to usher in those coming in for the service. I did that because there was a burning passion and fire of dedication in me and I wanted to do something for God. When Paul the apostle encountered God, the first thing he asked was, ‘Lord what will you have me do?’ (Acts 9:5).
Beloved, you cannot really encounter Jesus and not be on fire to do something for God. So, it is an abomination for you to be in church for donkey years and no one has felt your impact in church.
Remember this: You cannot really encounter Jesus and not be on fire to do something for God.
1.Make up your mind to develop an unquenchable passion for God’s House like Jesus (Luke 2:17)
2.Be committed to the development of the house of the Lord and Kingdom assignment.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to be committed first to You and Your House. Help me to release myself and resources for the advancement of Your Kingdom on earth, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
