2 Corinthians 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

Most of us would never consider bowing down and serving another person but too often we put ourselves on the throne in our life instead of putting Jesus there. Jesus deserves the position of Lordship in your life. You belong to Him. You are bought and paid for with His suffering for your sins and paying your sin debt to God. He is the Savior of our souls.

We should also let Him be the Master of our minds. Let your thoughts be centered around Jesus. Not too long ago wrist bracelets with WWJD were very popular. What that stood for was What Would Jesus Do? I have seen people wearing them that made me want to comment, "Well, He wouldn't act like you are acting right now?" or "I am sure he would wear that outfit." It is a good question to ask ourselves to help us control our behavior. What would Jesus do if He were in my situation right now. If you are in a situation that Jesus would never get Himself into then you know you should get out of it.

We should let Him be the Lord of our Actions. I am reminded of a story of a small boy selling apples on the street of a big city. It was Sunday and he was in front of a large church and as the people came out someone bumped his cart of apples and they began to roll everywhere. He scrambled to pick them up as the crowd just walked around him and ignored his plight. Suddenly a well dressed lady stopped and helped him pick up the apples. She then payed him for all the apples that were damaged. He asked her, "What is that big building all those people came out of anyway?"
She replied, "That is God's house." The little boy looked at her and smiled, "Are you God's wife?"

We should at least conduct ourselves in a way that people will know that we are somehow related to God.
Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
