• “One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there’s always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

“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.

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the Lord; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord. — Jeremiah 23:24 (NKJV)
