Fully Surrendered Giver
I fully honor God with 100% of everything he has given me. I hold all that I have with open hands freely and willingly giving to God in whatever way he is asking me to. God is my only source. My life reflects this truth as he continues to transform me each step of the way. I will always be on this journey of generosity with God. I am inspired and challenged by God every day to continue developing my attitude, willingness and heart for living a generous and fully surrendered life.
I think about eternity and building God’s Kingdom. Jesus forgave my sins, secured my eternity in heaven and has restored my relationship with God my father. I live my life in response to this and want to make an impact in this world for eternity. God has shown me I can leave a legacy for his Kingdom. Earth is fleeting but heaven is forever. There is nothing materialistic on earth that is more important than investing in leading others to Jesus! God has instilled in me radical and stunning generosity! Eternity is at stake, and I want to participate in his plan to reach as many people for Jesus as I can. I have locked arms with God to accomplish his mission. It’s not just about money. It’s living open-handed with all of my resources - ready, willing, and able serve God and introduce people to our Savior, Jesus.
Romans 12:1, 2 “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
1 John 2:15,16 “Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.
Prayer: “Lord, my heart is gripped by your love and grace that you so willing gave to me through the sacrifice of your son Jesus. Joining you in reaching others for Jesus is the greatest adventure in my life. I am all in with Jesus. I hold nothing back from you, father. Show me what you want me to do. Show me where you want me to go. Show me where you want me to give. I love you Lord. I pray that you use me in mighty ways.”
