Work with everything.

 

What are you holding back? What is it in your life that maybe you haven’t handed over to God? Is there something that still lingers in the back of your mind that you don’t truly want him to have?

 

When we give everything to God it’s with the knowledge that we may not reap in this life, but we will be rewarded in the next. We know that there will be no suffering, no hurt, no pain, and God will care for us. This should be the motivation to hand everything in this life over. Knowledge of his love, grace, sacrifice, and the life that is to come should cause me to abandon everything in this life to know him more.

 

Paul put it this way in Philippians 3:8:

 

“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake, I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ”
