So, my brothers, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God. Romans 7:4 NIV
There are so many things to consider when we become Christians. The enemy of our souls would have us bombarded by all the details. This busy world would keep us hustling and bustling about until we are lost in a sea of activity. But evil traps do not have to overcome us all. God has His plan. Christ has paid, taught, and called out to a select few. For those who hear, our conversion does not have to be one of regulation. The cross can end our tie to all that! We can put to death our tie to the old masters! We can be free to serve Another! We can belong to Christ! We can belong to the One Who was raised from the dead! We can bring fruit to God! Do we know who we belong to today?
The difference might be subtle. Dark forces would keep us from considering the true leaning of our hearts. But for those special individuals who truly do want to stand right with God will take the time to look. They will need to know that their souls are truly with the Lord they love. These precious children of Christ will burn within until their aching hearts are put at ease, knowing for sure that they have seen past every distraction and made sure that they belong to Christ! Are we sure we are dying to belong to Jesus?
Let nothing distract us from coming fully to You! Let us serve nothing before You no matter how high the notion!
