Beau's Sunday Sermon

"For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;" (Luke 9:24; Galatians 2:20a NKJV) Have you truly given your life to Christ? It's just not enough to say I believe in God, repent, and be baptized. That is just the first steps in truly giving your life to Christ. Once you turn you truly give your life to Christ, then you totally strip away who you are, or were, as a person, and let God totally take over you and your life. You completely and totally lose yourself and yield yourself to God, so that He may work within and through you. You become His vessel of good works, and at the same time God is reshaping and molding you into all that He knows you can be. Until you completely lose your life and yield it to God, then you have not yet totally given your life to Him. If this is what you truly desire, then take a moment now and pray, "God I believe in You and I completely trust in You. I give my life completely to you to do Your will. It is no longer I that lives, but You that lives and works through me. Use me, mold me. In Christ's name, I pray. Amen." Love, Beau
