Romans 6:13 (NLT) “…Give yourselves completely to God. Since you’ve been given new life, use your whole body as a tool to do what is right for the glory of God.”
I love a good pie. Just the thought of pie makes my mouth water and my thoughts focus on that delicious pie. One evening, I remember seeing my favorite pie on the counter. I knew I had to wait until after supper to have my pie, so I cut a small piece and put it in a safe place out of sight. Sometimes that’s the way we do God. We want Him in our lives, when we want Him. But we give Him a little piece of our lives, and we set Him aside until later.
When supper was over I declined a piece of the pie offered to me. I didn’t know someone had found my little piece of pie and ate it. I looked for the pie dish and found it–empty. I whined the rest of the evening.
Don’t set God aside until later. “Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while he is near.” Isaiah 55:6
“…Give yourselves completely to God.” Romans 6:13 Don’t wait and don’t relegate Him to a little piece of your life.
