Most preachers today are not willing to give their life for Jesus Christ. It is obvious by the way they work to “appease” those who make the largest donations to their security. If these preachers were totally devoted to Jesus then they would do as Jesus did and would do and never compromise the gospel message. They would preach the truth so that people can get convicted and repent. They would not be kicking people to the curb as they did me. -Admin-
Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62 (NKJV)
Jesus was committed to the Father’s mission, even to the point of death. If you plan to answer the call of Christ, you must be committed to His mission. Lack of commitment may cause you to waver, become fearful, and eventually quit. Peter sank while walking on the water because he took his eyes off the Savior and became consumed with his surroundings.
Jesus told His disciples that no one who puts his hands to the plow and then looks back at what might have been is fit for the kingdom of God. Commitment is everything to Him. If you are not fully committed to Christ, you will never be committed to His mission.
Many people fail to answer God’s call because the commitment seems too great—the requirements too stiff. You may never understand God’s motive in calling you to a certain task, but you can be sure He has a purpose and a wonderful plan in store for you. Obedience is always the prelude to blessing.
Jesus was and still is fully committed to you. Are you committed to Him and His call? If so, praise Him for His work in your life, and then ask Him to give you wisdom and insight into your personal mission.
