Jordan For Jesus #007 "Unstoppable - Part 2" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-04-03 07:50:20
Giving Jesus your all (meaning 100%) doesn't end when you get saved. It is a lifestyle that is constantly lived out through obedience before God. It is a choice to choose Jesus each day by completely and totally surrendering to Him. This is having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus said, in the Bible, that "If you truly love Me you will keep my commandments." (John 14:15).
Satan makes sin seem so right and so fun, but it isn't, and the end result is that it ultimately leads to destruction. Walking in obedience before God is hard but it is worth it because it leads to life. Although we could give everything we have and it would never be enough, God honors and rewards obedience. When we walk in obedience before God we experience His blessings and favor and we do not endure the pain of sin. Although, we shouldn't walk in obedience before God just to be rewarded. We should walk in obedience before God because we love Him.
When you are truly saved by Jesus Christ it becomes your greatest heart's desire to obey God above all else. We should give God 100%, our all, because He is our God! This life is not our own, it was given to us by God, in heaven, therefore we should honor Him with it twenty-four seven.
