PRAYER: Lord, Please Guide Me In All The Decisions I Will Make For My Life

It was a sacrificial decision for Peter to abandon the target of his life's breakthrough — the great catch of fishes – in order to follow after an itinerant teacher. However, that single decision gave his life meaning and purpose. I often consider Peter to be one of the most well-known guys in history, because he has at least one structure named after him on every continent. How did he manage to accomplish this? He opted to live a life that was lucrative to his Creator, despite the fact that it cost a great deal of sacrifice at first. Similarly, it took a great deal of self-sacrifice for Apostle Paul to give up his doctorate in law in order to evangelize the Way that he had previously rejected so violently.

The second birth is the beginning of a life that is profitable to God. “The amazing grace of God, for which Jesus Christ paid such a high price, will not go to waste over me,” a person who pledges his or her life to Christ is saying. If you haven't yet surrendered your life to Christ, you must do so today to begin living a fruitful life. In Luke 5:8, Peter did this at the Lake of Gennesaret:

“When Simon Peter saw it, he went to his knees before Jesus, begging, ‘Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man.'”

On the way to Damascus, Paul did the same thing (Acts 9:3-6). God is also calling out to you, beloved. Today, these are His words to you:

“Therefore, repent and be converted, that your sins may be forgiven when the times of refreshing arrive from the Lord's presence;” – Acts 3:19)

If you have been born again, however, you must understand that a disciple of Jesus Christ is expected to live a life of sacrifice. For the sake of the gospel, the Lord expects you to be willing to offer your everything and, if necessary, lay down your life. This is what He promises to those who do it:

“...Truly, I say unto you, There is no man who hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, or the gospel's sake, But he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.” (Mark 10:29-30)

In Jesus' name, may the Lord guide you in your decision.
