I hope to be able to attend church's Celebration for 40DOC.
Personally, I felt very enthusiastic about the whole campaign since 40DOP indeed blessed me and changed my walk with God.
The last week was about GIVING to God. How much could we GIVE? Can we avail ourselves at anytime so that whenever God calls upon us, we can respond to him immediately? Would I wait when he calls me to serve him? Why am I still letting him to wait for me?
The chorus really speaks about offering our life ENTIRELY for God:
All that I am, all that I have,
I lay them down before You, O Lord.
All my regrets, all my acclaim,
The joy and the pain, I'm making them Yours.
Lord, I offer my life to You.
Everything I've been through, use it for Your Glory.
Lord, I offer my days to You,
Lifting my praise to You, as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord, I offer You my life.
Things in the past, things yet unseen,
Wishes and dreams that are yet to come true,
All of my hopes, all of my plans,
My heart and my hands are lifted to You.
Have I really surrendered myself to God? Am i really glorifying God for everything in the past that I've been through?
Is the church ready (especially the leadership)? Are they influential and encouraging enough?
I dare not respond to SERVE or Surrender my life. If i ever do so, I'd remember the mission trip that Pastor had been asking me. If I had totally surrendered my life for God, why contemplating about going or not? Why decline when being asked to?
