I thank God for all that He has done for us and while we are still wavering where we are let I consider our purpose in this life. My brothers and sisters in the Lord. God is calling you to surrender to His calling so He can use you to His potential.
“Men who will be aflame with Thy Spirit.
Men with burning hearts.
Men with brimming eyes and bursting lips;
Men who fear nothing but sin,
Desire nothing but to do His will.
Men who will get involved.“
I heard a story about a young man who was proposing to his girl:
He said, “I am not wealthy like Jerome Green,
and I don’t have a yacht or a luxury car like Jerome Green, but my darling, I love you.” The girl thought for a moment and then replied, “I love you, too; but tell me more about Jerome Green.” Where is this girl’s commitment? She wasn’t sure of the choice she accepted. Immediately she began to waver in her faith whether the man was right for her. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. It can be fake and looks real. God give us men with surrendered hearts.
This same thing is true of so many Christians. One of the great virtues and one of the most difficult to practice is commitment. God, give us men who are so committed to Christ that they are no longer tempted to turn aside for conflicting interests. Commitment is the essential secret of the Christian life.
Accept the challenge! God is looking for men! Do you want to be counted as one of the men God is calling? If you are, then surrender to His will and let Him lead the way in your life.
I read about, General Montgomery, the famed British military strategist, was giving a preview of a forthcoming battle in his famous map room somewhere in North Africa. When he had finished, his field officers agreed that the battle plan was sound. Montgomery then put the matter before them rather sharply when he said, “The plan is sound, but maps without men mean nothing.”
The church possesses great potential. We have a great mission. We need men!
The question is: “Are you that man God is calling to stand in the gap?” If you are I urge you to come to Jesus without delay and let His show you the way.
