All Of Me

My mind belongs to Jesus. My heart belongs to Jesus. My body, my hands, my feet, belong to Jesus.

With my mind, I understand that Jesus is the Son of the Living God, the God Who rules over all and that He gave His life that I might live in the presence of the Living God eternally. With my mind, I meditate upon God's Word both night and day as every thought is captured in Christ. However, if my knowledge of God is all that I have, all that I live by, God's Word becomes dry and useless in me, reduced to Biblical facts and principles. God's Word demeaned to the level of the product of human intellect. It is not enough to give only my mind to Jesus. I must also give my heart to Jesus.

The emotions of my heart give depth to the written Word in me. It is my heart that convinces me of the reality of all that I read in the Bible and of all that I hear preached according to the Holy Spirit. It is my heart that received Divine Love from my Father and enables me to Love Him above all others in return. It is my heart that is filled with the devotion that binds me to God forever. Yet, if I give Jesus only my heart, I've no boundaries and will follow its emotional lead to disaster if I have not also given Him my mind. It also is not enough to only give him my mind and my heart and relegate Jesus to the world of the abstract of thought and feeling. I must also give Jesus my body.

My body is the earthly temple of the Living God. In me, and others called according to His purpose, God chooses to dwell through the Power of the Holy Spirit. This temple is a holy place and must be maintained with reverence. My feet are to move me according to God's Will and take me where He desires that I go. My hands are to do the Work of God as He directs me daily. This direction from God by the Holy Spirit is given through my mind and heart that already belong to Jesus. If Jesus did not live in my heart and if God's Words were not written upon my mind, my body would move naturally to its own accord and never realize the holy purpose for which it had been created.

All of me belongs to Jesus and this is what it means to obey. Full obedience from those God has called out of the world in Christ Jesus is what the Father desires. He will accept nothing less for it is required in order to fulfill His purpose. His purpose is to His Glory and for our benefit.

Jesus, take all of me. Claim that which you already own that to my joy, my purpose be fully manifest and You be fully glorified in me. All to the Glory of God the Father. Amen.
