• “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot

“I Do” Every Day by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/09/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When a man and woman stand before a minister and join their lives together, they say some important words.

“I do.”

That marriage covenant reminds me of my relationship with Christ. There was a point where we said, “I do,” and entered into an eternal relationship with Him.

Now, a husband and wife learn to live out their vows “for better or worse” in the nitty-gritty of real life. Our commitment to Christ is no different. At the point of conversion, we surrendered our whole self, but now we have to live out that commitment in real life. It requires a new surrender of ourselves every day.

Romans 12:1 tells us: “Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God.” You may have made an initial sacrifice to God. Are you living out that commitment through daily sacrifice of your time and your possessions to Him? What would it mean for you today to offer yourself as a “living sacrifice”?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
