A Message for the Whole Man
A MESSAGE FOR THE WHOLE MAN
by Eddie Lawrence
TEXT: Romans 12:1-2 with emphasis on offering yourself to the Lord.
1. OPEN YOUR EYES
-Jesus teaches us that when we are born again we can see the kingdom. Begin using your spiritual eyes to see what God wants you to see.
-There is warfare over your eyes. The enemy wants to fill your eyes with his activity. The Holy Spirit wants to fill your eyes with His activity. What you set your eyes on will determine who controls the vision of your life.
-Let you eyes be set upon Jesus and things of God above (Col. 3:1)
2. SHUT YOUR MOUTH
-Your words are powerful. They contain life or death. Which are you speaking?
-Do you realize the very environment around you is influenced by the words you speak out your mouth? Change how you speak and watch what happens to the world around you?
-As someone aptly said, “God made us with two ears and one mouth for a reason. We should listen twice at much as we talk.”
-Learn the art of listening and then speaking what the Lord would have you to speak. In doing so, you will avoid a lot of pain and attract a lot of gain.
3. GUARD YOUR HEART
-As proverbs states, the issues of life proceed out of our hearts and we need to guard our heart because of it.
-An unguarded heart can become:
Uncaring and Cold
Filled with Anxiety
-The very words you speak reflect the depths of your heart. Keep you heart warm and filled with the life giving love of God.
4. USE YOUR FEET
-God’s children are led by the Spirit (Rom. 8:14).
-We should walk in the Spirit to fulfill the purposes of God for all the areas of our lives.
-It is with a faith and peace filled heart and feet shod with peace that you trample the enemy under foot (Eph. 6; Rom. 16:20).
-Don’t use your feet to carry to a place that God has not led you to. Let them carry you to the land of God’s will.
-Let them carry you to share God’s love and then they will be beautiful.
5. LIFT YOUR HANDS
-This is one of the forms of worshipping and praising God. Choose to lift your hands:
-In surrender to the will of God.
-In wonder of the majesty of God.
-In love reaching up to Father God.
-In sacrifice offering yourself to God.
Conclusion: These are a few ways we can become more totally given to the Lord as a living sacrifice.
