As John Wesley Said…

This is my interpretation of John Wesley’s covenant service in 1775. 

Dear God, I am not mine, but I am yours.                                                                                                         

Give me to do, what you would have me do.                                                                              

Give me things to do, let me suffer for you, working for you, or be set aside for you.

Lift me up or bring me to the lowest, all for you Lord

Whether I be full or empty,

Let me have everything or not one thing,

I live for your glory, your pleasure and at your disposal

Now God the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit, 

All I have, all that I am, is yours

I promise you this here on earth, but pray that you ratify it in heaven. Amen

Why Bother?

 

Do you wonder why God even bothers about you? Why has he made all these astounding promises to us? These verses give us the answer. Oh and don’t forget gals, he used here is all man/womankind so we are included! YAY!

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life, I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” (Psalm 91:14-16, NIV)

Did you get that? Because we love him and acknowledge his name, he rescues, protects delivers and honors us.

And all we have to do is call on his name. Do you know the name he speaks of? Are you aware of the name above all names? Without it, God’s protection plan is not available to us.

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-12, NIV)
