Give It Back

“You can’t really give God tomorrow; you can only give him what you have, and today is all you have.” –Tim Lahaye

If God asked you to return everything He’s given you: the relationships with your spouse and children, dearest friendships, health, earthly possessions, your hopes and dreams—would you still serve Him?  God would never ask because He wants your “stuff,” because it was already His to begin with (Psalm 24:1).  God wants your heart.  Take the time today to offer your life back to the Giver of everything.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship  (Romans 12:1, NIV).
