Topic: The Profit Of Dedication To God [23rd September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
Thought For The Day: It is not possible to give God the first place in your life and come last in life.
To be dedicated to God is to make God the number one priority of your life. It is making God the centre of your adoration and worship. Dedication is also serving God with the whole of your life, resources, time and talent in uprightness.
The Bible makes it clear that dedication to God leads to the addition of things desired for success in life and destiny. A life that is dedicated to God can never be devoid of the additions of desirable things.
Now, let me give you three facts on dedication to God:
1. There is no wasted service to God. We do not serve God in vain (Isaiah 45:19).
2. The place you give to God in your life determines the place you find in time and in eternity.
It is not possible to give God the first place in your life and come last in life.
3. The dividends of dedication to God far outweigh the cost of your commitment to God.
The gain of your commitment to God is more than the cost of your dedication to Him.
Beloved, the reward of dedication to God is priceless.
Therefore, determine to be dedicated to God and it will amaze you where He will position you in this life and in the life to come.
Remember this: It is not possible to give God the first place in your life and come last in life.
1. Endeavour to be involved in active service in church by joining a service unit where you can make your service to God count.
2. Do not allow your devotional life to be replaced with vocational activities.
3. Let your heart be involved in your service to God; do it as unto God, not unto man. Do it to be raised by God; not to be praised by man.
