Topic: Proofs Of Total Surrender [Seeds of Destiny Tuesday April 10, 2018]
Scripture: My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways. Proverbs 23:26
Thought For The Day: What you do with your time must be determined by God if you have really given your life to Christ.
In the church today, many people claim to have given their lives to Christ. They answer the call to surrender at the altar after a message is preached but in the actual sense, their lifestyles still contradict what they claim to be; their actions contradict their confession. Their lives do not show genuine proofs of total surrender. Hence, there is a need to know the proofs of total surrender.
Now, what are the proofs of total surrender to Christ? In what area of life do we expect proofs of total surrender as Christians?
i) Your Time
What you do with your time must be determined by God. What you do with your time must glorify God if you have really given your life to Christ. Do not use your time to hurt Christ with what you do; do not use your time to serve Christ’s enemies if truly you have given your life to Him.
ii) Your Relationships
If you have given your life to Christ, He must have the final say in the matter of your relationships. Not everyone can be your friend (Psalms 1:1-3). The Scripture said, do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14)
iii) Your Transactions
If you cannot involve Christ in your life’s transactions, then you have not given your life to Him.
Some time ago, one of our brothers told me how they were going for a certain meeting in a place; all of them were Christians and one of them said, ‘We are going in now to deliberate, we have to leave Christ outside. Christ cannot be involved in this kind of deliberation.’ But the brother said, ‘As for me, I am going inside with Christ’. What a terrible disposition to life! You see, when people leave God out in a business transaction for example, and bring the tithe to Church, such tithe is useless. Every tithe or money from questionable or immoral sources multiples your abomination towards God (Proverb 15:6). You cannot give to God the proceeds of what you did not involve Him in.
Beloved, your goal in life should be: anywhere Christ cannot go with me, I do not want to go there; anything Jesus cannot do with me, I do not want to do it; anything God will not give me, I do not need it.
Remember this: What you do with your time must be determined by God if you have really given your life to Christ.
1. Decide to allow Christ control what you do with your time.
2. Avoid any relationship that will not glorify Christ.
3. Make Christ the centre stage of all your transactions in life.
Prayer: O Lord, I surrender my time, relationships and transactions to You. Take total control, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
