How is your commitment to the Lordship of Christ?

Excerpt from p.219-220 of Dear Sister:

The bible tells us that we are not our own, but that Christ purchased us with His own blood and we have become God's own possession (1 Cor. 6:19-20; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 Peter 2:9).

If these Scriptures re true of us, we will:

  • Love what God loves and hate what He hates.
  • Not question His Word.
  • Be willing to lay down our own plans and wishes and submit to His.
  • Have no resentment in our hearts when God sends us to a place we don't like to go.
  • Be content with whatever He provides for us, whether little or much.
  • Accept the lowest assignment with the same glad attitude as the highest.
  • Do our best for Him with all our heart, all our soul, and all our strength.
  • Not ask for an easier or more comfortable life.
  • Always seek to please Him instead of ourselves.
  • Choose to serve others instead of ruling over them.
  • Be satisfied with God's approval and not be affected by people's opinion of us.
  • Walk in humility toward God and our brothers and sisters.
  • Not seek--even secretly--for honor, position, or recognition for our service.
  • Be willing to suffer if it brings glory to Jesus and advances His kingdom.
  • Never consider stopping our service to the Lord when other believers or leaders fail us.
  • Find our fulfillment in obedience to His will instead of in the things we want to do.
  • Place no restrictions on what God can do with our lives.
