What it really means to surrender your life

August 22

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

 Isaiah 6:8 

Over 200 years ago, a humble shoe cobbler by the name of William Carey stood before an austere group of ministers at a Baptist association in London, England. And he said to those men, “God has put it on my heart to reach the masses with the Gospel message and to take seriously the command of Christ to take the Gospel to the world.”

Well, one rather pompous minister stood to his feet and said to Carey, “Young man, sit down. When God chooses to save the pagan, He’ll do it at His own time and in His own way.” But that would not suffice for William Carey. Bold in his faith, he went to India, led countless people to Jesus Christ, and sparked the modern missions movement!

All it took was one little shoe cobbler in England to change the world for Christ. And he did it despite the fact that many people, even Christians, were against Him going. What a bold testimony of faith!

What would your life look like if you served God with that kind of fervor? Where would you go? What would you do? Take a bold step of faith today and tell God, “Wherever… whatever… whenever… I’m yours!”
