Did You Commit?

 

1 Corinthians 1:9 – “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

 

John Calvin was one of the greatest theologians who ever lived. He said, “I gave up all for Christ and what have I found? I have found everything in Christ.” Do you wish you could say that too? You can. Just don’t get confused about what it means to “give up all” to find Christ. So many think that being a disciple means they must get into a movement or go to the mission field or attend seminary. Friend, being a disciple is fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ — knowing Jesus intimately and following Him wherever He leads. Fellowship with Christ comes before service for Christ. We must be ministered to from Jesus before we can minister to anyone else.

 

Live It Out:

Are you praying about where you fit in to the body of Christ as His disciple? This is one reason why the 5.5.5. Challenge is so important. Did you commit to spend at least 5 minutes a day in the Word of God, 5 minutes a day talking to the Lord and 5 minutes a day talking about God to other people? Then live that commitment out! Spend some time fellowshipping with Him this week and the answer will come as to where you fit in the body of Christ.
