What Can I Lay Down?

What God has Done:

When we think of the love that kept Jesus nailed to the Cross, so that He could pay the penalty for our sins, and rise from the dead to be our Saviour, we cannot understand such love.  But, we can say with Paul:

"But you have received a spirit of adoption as sons
by which we cry out, 'Abba, Father!'
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit,
that we are children of God" (Romans 8:15b-16).

Our Love in Return:

We must show our love to God and to our Saviour, Jesus Christ.   Jesus laid down His life for our Salvation.  In return we can lay down seven parts of our life and body:

  1.  My life - laid down for Jesus.

  2.  My strength - given over to Jesus.

  3.  My ears - hearing only what God has to say.

  4.  My voice - praising and worshipping Jesus.

  5.  My hands - ministering blessing to others.

  6.  My feet - spreading the Gospel to the world.

  7.  My will - working only the will of God.

Allow Your Love to Flow Out:

Think about these things and allow the Holy Spirit to minister healing, revival, life and joy into your soul.  Then worship Jesus our gentle and loving Saviour.  And then allow all your love and care to flow out and reach those you minister to.

God bless!
