Resolved to be Devoted to God

Resolved to be Devoted to God

January 30, 2019

 

            This past Sunday I preached Psalm 76. At the end of the Psalm we were reminded to commit ourselves to God based on the salvation that He gives to us. I read a quote from Jonathan Edwards on his desire to be completely devoted to God. This quote has motivated me throughout my Christian life. I wanted to share the quote with you in written form. As you reflect more and more on the salvation that you’ve been given, may you increasingly devote yourself to your faithful God. -Pastor Andrew

“I claim no right to myself, no right to this understanding, this will, these affections that are in me. Neither do I have any right to this body or its members, no right to this tongue, to these hands, feet, ears or eyes. I have given myself clear away and not retained anything of my own.

“I have been to God this morning and told Him I have given myself wholly to Him, I have given every power so that for the future I claim no right to myself in any respect. I have expressly promised Him, for by His grace I will not fail. I take Him as my whole portion and felicity, looking upon nothing else as any part of my happiness.

“His law is the constant rule of my obedience. I will fight with all my might against the world, the flesh and the devil to the end of my life. I will adhere to the faith of the gospel however hazardous and difficult the profession and practice of it may be. I pray God for the sake of others to look on this as self-dedication.

“Henceforth, I am not to act in any respect as my own. I shall act as my own if I ever make use of any of my powers to do anything that is not to the glory of God or to fail to make the glorifying of Him my whole and entire business. If I murmur in the least at affliction, if I am in any way uncharitable, if I revenge my own case, if I do anything purely to please myself or omit anything because it is a great denial, if I trust myself, if I take any praise for any good which Christ does by me, or if I am in any way proud, I shall act as my own and not God’s.

“But I purpose to be absolutely His.”
