Living for the Lord

by Ben on June 4, 2008

I have been compelled tonight to write something in my blog. I don’t know if anyone will even see it, but that doesn’t matter.

I find myself challenged by the Spirit to live truly and completely for the Lord. If I was to do that, completely and with all of my heart, what would it look like? I have heard it preached from the pulpit many times: “What would our lives be like if we really forsook all else and lived for God?” But it always seemed like pie in the sky thinking. Like an unachievable goal. But why would God ask us to do something that is impossible? Aren’t we supposed to seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness? And ALL these things will be added unto you? Why don’t we believe that? The spirit of unbelief is so prevalent and sinister. 

I think in the past when I have heard this kind of message from anyone, my soul very clearly sided with the spirit of unbelief. But the Holy Spirit tugged at me. The radical difference in living for the Lord the way we are supposed to is all but unheard of. How would people react? What would they say, and what would they think?  But we are not to fear the judgement of man. (1 Cor. 2:15) I want to live for the Lord.
