Topic: Dedicated to God's Plan [22/7/2016]
Text: John 9:4-5
The greatest form of worship we can offer unto God is to be dedicated to His plans and purposes for our lives. There are no greater ways to express our love - worship - for God, than to be totally committed to what He has set out to use His vessels - His sons and daughters - to accomplish. Repeatedly, in scriptures, Jesus made it clear about His absolute dedication to the plan of God for His life.
In John 4:34 Jesus said: "...My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work." Jesus was making His disciples know what fuels all that He was doing - the will/plan of God. He was so dedicated to it that even when it seems His strength was going to fail him, the passion and dedication to execute the plan of the Father became His driving force. In that moment He said: "...O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." (Matthew 26:39).
We must, like Jesus, be totally dedicated to the fulfillment of God's plans for our lives. Once you have discovered what the Lord would have you do with your life, consummate your totality to it. Just like Jesus, say to yourself: "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work" (John 9:4). It is the highest form of worship you can give to God. No act of worship surpasses it. Don't be slothful in it but be fully dedicated to God's plans for your life.
Keep winning daily.
I am a living sacrifice, performing my act of worship through my total commitment to the plan of God for my life. As a vessel suitable for His use, I work the works of Him that sent me and to finish them with aplomb, in Jesus name. Amen.
