The King of kings and Lord of lords demands the highest honour in the life of the Faith Child. Anything less is second best and so do not ask why it seems you are not experiencing  God’s best.  How dare we ask of God’s best when we give Him our second best.

21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 22 But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieving; for he was one who owned much property. Matthew 19:21-22

To His disciples  who followed Him, He said:

27 Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?” 28 And Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.29 “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life. 30 “But many who are first will be last; and the last, first. Matthew 19: 27-30

Yes, you may be last in the eyes of the world, but you shall be first in His eyes.

The Lord cannot be short-changed. He will not allow it for He knows what He wants and He demands it for who He is.

He lovingly gave His best in His Son, Jesus Christ as a sacrifice to a world lost in sin which includes you and me.  Should He expect less than our best for Him?

We grudgingly give Him our time and waste hours watching  reality TV shows, exalting self in blogs unending, texting messages of no consequence, befriending friends who are like ships passing in the night on social networks. We give Him our second best when we just about ran out of time with our devotions,  our relentless pursuit of the temporal, just to appease our consciences and scarred commitment to Him.

If you have not given Him your best, do you still expect His best for you? Stop giving Him your left-overs now you know what He demands. He did not give us His left-overs but the best.

Look at what He’s got for you – don’t miss out on His best.

  1. A recurring message. In my post yesterday I used a quote from Steve Prefontaine, a champion American distance runner, who held every record in 2,000 to 10,000 metre events.
    He said “TO GIVE ANYTHING LESS THAN THE BEST IS TO SACRIFICE THE GIFT”

    In our service to the King of kings, can we do anything less? He requires and is entitled to, our TOTAL commitment – our ALL!

    Bless you for this message today. God gave His all for us, we have no business giving Him stale leftovers.

  3. Wow, I think God had it in His mind for us to share a message of the same theme today about giving God our very best. Praise the Lord! Thank you for this message and these great scriptures!
