Give Jesus Your All
Matthew 22:37-40 (NKJV)
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Giving your all to Jesus, what does that look like to you? Too many times we think in what we think this look like, but He will show us if we will seek Him with all our heart. We think it may be open our pocket book to help, cook meals, give rides, laugh and cry, or all the above. The key to giving of yourself to Him and seeking how to share His love and that may be all of these, some of these or even other areas you can share His love in that you have the ability to share.
When we look at the word all we can break it down as an acrostic:
Jesus wants to teach us how to give Him our all and we see the three keys: Ask by praying, Listen by seeing what He has in the Scriptures to show you, and Learn from what He shows you through Scriptures, others, as well as circumstances. We know He loves us so seek what He has for you. Your path, your mission, your gifts and your journey are there before you if you will seek His will and be all that you are to be.
When we are all we are to be He will get all the Glory and we will know our purpose when we give Him our all.
As I seek Your love, help me be all that You desire me to be in my journey. Please mold me and make me to become the servant I desire to become in allowing Your love to flow through me. Please Holy Spirit help me in my prayers to ask and help me to listen and learn the teachings Jesus has for me as I am guided to do the Father’s will. Thank You Jesus for teaching me and thank You Father for Your love for us.
To You Father be all the Glory! Amen!
