GIVE YOUR ALL

I have said on many occasions to our congregation; when you see me lose my commitment as pastor, call a new pastor. Everyone called by God should give their best with all their heart, soul and mind. God has given us the opportunity to serve, but how we serve depends upon us. Serve with passion, commitment, enthusiasm, and zeal. I remember singing a song in the church “Give of your best to the Master; Give of the strength of your youth; Throw your soul’s fresh, glowing ardor into the battle for truth.” We are encouraged to give our all as recorded in Jeremiah 1:5.

“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

We see Jeremiah’s call.  Before he was formed in his mother’s womb, the Lord anointed him for service. Jeremiah indicated that he was too young, but the Lord said you are not too young. Go where I send you and I will be with you. Jeremiah receives the Word of the Lord and obeys with his heart, soul and mind. What a powerful testimony. May we be like the prophet Jeremiah and give God all our praise, service, and reverence because He is a Holy God and has allowed us to serve Him.
