“Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work” – John 4:34
Devoting Himself wholly to the service of God, was the main objective in the life of our Savior Jesus Christ; and it was without a shadow of doubt evident in every area of His life.
Despite betrayals from friends, plotted conspiracies and sufferings for the wrong doings of others, Jesus remained fully devoted and committed to His Father in Heaven, and the work He was called to do; even up to His last day on earth. His definite decision to be fully devoted to the service of God resulted in his having a successful ministry for the glory of God, thereby fulfilling God’s plan for his life.
God will use those for His work who make a sacrifice to separate themselves wholly from the world, and any other thing that may hinder their relationship with God, to make His work a priority.
What is your main objective in life? Should it not be to whole-heartedly live for God, to do His will and to finish His work? Prove the sincerity of your love for God by giving Him all of You, that he may be glorified through you. Make it the main objective in your life. Make it a daily personal goal. Make it a lifetime commitment; not because you have to, but because you sincerely want to.
A sincere love for a God so good, and full of grace and mercy will naturally result in a desire to get closer to Him, to have more of Him in your life, and to wholly surrendering your entire life to serving Him. After all, it is the reasonable service of every born-again believer in Christ.
