I Kings 8:61 ” But your hearts must be fully committed to the Lord our God…”

I’m going to build on the Devotional I wrote yesterday about serving/volunteering in Church. The verse above speaks of commitment to the Lord… about whole-hearted devotion, obedience, and integrity on our part… not only with Him but with His Church also. Yes, with His beloved bride, the Church. We may think we’re fully committed to Jesus Christ, but when it comes to His Church, we’re lukewarm at best. We’re fine with some short-term commitments, especially if they’re a high profile, lots of public exposure type of functions. We’ll help out at a one day Church Conference, or bring a dish to a funeral dinner, or serve a day or two at Vacation Bible School …but don’t you dare ask me to be a Sunday School Teacher, or greet at the front door, or heaven forbid, lead a home Bible study group at my house! That’s just too much of a burden and obligation for me to take on! But commitment to Christ is commitment to His Church there’s no two ways around it. So again I exhort you, if you are not fully engaged in your Church serving in some capacity…you need to be.
