Welcome Back! This is the 3rdand final part to the Elapsed Series! If you’ve enjoyed it, please let me know! I always love hearing from you guys. Sometimes it’s the very thing that keeps me going when I really want to give it all up... (Transparency Moment)
So far we have learned to EMBRACE the time of God, LEARN everything we can in each stage of life to live the life God wants us to live, and now we will talk about GIVING.
The bible talks about giving in a few aspects, but today we will discuss what it is like to give our lives. When I first wrote out this now infamous (lol) caption, my intentions of saying give were meaning to take all that we’ve learned and deposit it back into the world. But as I begin writing this series, the mean stayed true to my first intentions but changed a bit.
When it comes to the series, GIVE means to give our lives over. To embrace God’s timing and learn to live abundant lives, we have to give our lives over to God. When we give over our lives, we give over our will and wants to do things in our own timings and strengths. To be all that God wants us to be we must be willing to be used by Him. When we give our lives over to Him, we become his instruments, his hands and his feet on the Earth to do His works.
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice--the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
Romans 12:1 (NLT)
The scripture above further describes what I am saying. When we give our lives as sacrifices and live Holy unto God, it is our truest form of worship to Him.
I am challenging you to take all that you’ve learned in this series and apply it to your life. Trust God’s timing. Live abundantly. Give your life. Living for God will always be worth it!
