May 6: Dedication
Scripture Lesson: Romans 5:6-8
Today is the birthday of Hall-of-Famer Willie Mays. The “Say Hey
Kid” ended his career with 660 home runs, 1,903 RBIs, and a .302 lifetime
batting average. When asked about his success, Mays said, “In order to excel,
you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport. You must also be
prepared to work hard and be willing to accept constructive criticism. Without
100 percent dedication you will not be able to succeed.”
In Paul’s letter to the Church at Rome, he reminded his readers
what true dedication is all about. God is so dedicated to saving humanity from
their sins that He sent His Son to die for us. Even though we did not deserve
this gift, nor could we ever earn this gift, God freely gave His Son for us.
God loves us, and doesn’t want any to perish without the opportunity to accept
Christ as our Lord and Savior. There is no greater demonstration of love and
dedication than what God did for us in sending Jesus to the world to die for
our sins and mistakes!
we give 100 percent dedication to God?
God done for each of us in this passage?
we show God we love Him like He loves us?
May each of us this day and every day be 100 percent dedicated to
God in how we live and how we serve Him and our fellow man.
