Will You?

When God calls us from our comfort zone, some will refuse to answer. And many who have answered will abandon the call because they are counting the cost. For the greater call will always require greater Service,Commitment and Sacrifice. But when we pause and consider what Christ has accomplished for us through His death, burial and resurrection, our reasonable response is to humbly say “Yes Lord.” For what we give up in this life for Him will never be greater than the life that He gave up for us. Selah!

When God comes knocking on the door of our heart, we can either resist Him or do as the Apostle Paul did. “And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.” Acts 9:6 KJV

No one knows when God is going to call or apprehend them on the road to Damascus! However when He does, there are a few compelling questions that He will require each and everyone of us to answer. 
                                 
                 
                     ~Will You~

Will you lay down your life to follow after me?
Will you pay the price to fulfill your divine destiny?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me?

Will you love the ones who have hurt and offended you?

Will you pay the price to die to yourself,

Will you live by your faith and not by your flesh?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you walk by my Word and not what you see?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you set the ones who are wounded and captive free?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you cry out for the eyes of all nations to see?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you be the vessel of honor that I’ve called you to be?
