To totally commit our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ is the first thing we must do to spiritually prepare for the coming persecution in this country. And, as we said last week, the way to do that is found in the words of John the Baptist. John said, when comparing his ministry with that of his Lord:
“He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).
The first statement, the “I must decrease” part is easy to understand yet difficult to apply. But what about the second statement, the “He must increase” part? What does that mean? How can I, a mere mortal, make Jesus more than He already is? Or, what can I give Him, who created everything, that He doesn’t already possess?
Keep listening as we begin to answer this all-important question that will give us practical steps to total commitment.
The following is a study on Total Commitment.
