Dedicated


What does it mean to dedicated?  Dictionary.com defines Dedicated as "wholly committed to something, as to an ideal, political cause, or personal goal". In our lives, what things are we wholly dedicated to?  Certainly our family?  Or even our good friends?  Those are wonderful things to be dedicated to, but the most importing thing to be dedicated to is Christ our Savior.  Unless we dedicate our entire life to God and let the Holy Spirit reign within, the other items like family and friends will not be successful.

In the early church, Paul faced several situations that challenged their dedication.  We read in Acts 14: 19-22, “And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.  Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch, confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God."

In this New Year, my prayer is that we are dedicated enough to face the tribulations of life and "continue in the faith". And just like Paul, pick ourselves up from tribulation, continue telling people about what a wonderful, mighty God we serve, and encourage our brothers and sisters around us to be dedicated as well.
