I prayed before making this final commitment. It would have be easy to say yes without paying attention to details. After all, who would know? God would know, and God will know if I remain active, or if I slack off.
I felt called to make this public commitment; to put it more bluntly, I needed to make it. It is an answer to my prayer that Jesus enter my life more fully, and lead me to be His servant. I need to be connected to others trying to live for God’s kingdom, not for their own self.
