Give God all that He deserves


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times God has given us everything and so it is only right that we give God what He deserves, beginning with our acknowledgement that all that we have we owe to Him. We acknowledge the debt we owe God and our dependence on Him when we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, acknowledging that without Him we are not saved from the consequences of our own sinful nature. Next, we must live as Jesus wants us to live, living lives that testify to His power to change lives for the better. By doing so, we set an example for others who see Christ in us and how He has changed our lives and helps draw them closer to accepting Him as Lord and Savior as well. That life, that Christian life, is a life of Christ-based morality that shapes how we relate to Him and to those around us. It is a life that makes the world a better place for everyone because it is a world guided by the words Christ spoke and the example Christ set during His earthly ministry and, more importantly, through the reality of His continuing and living influence on those who believe on Him.
