2 Kings 11:1-12:21; Jeremiah 48:1-47; Hebrews 12:18-13:6

“Follow Me”. But he said, “Lord, let me first…” Luke 9:59, NKJV
“Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” Acts 9:6

How many would-be disciples have said, “Lord, let me first do
this or that” and because they have been in control of their own
lives have failed to fit into God’s wonderful plan for them. If Jesus
Christ is Lord He must always have first place! To say “Lord, me
first” is a contradiction in terms. When I realise who the Lord Jesus
really is, my only reasonable response will be to fall at His feet in
brokenness and humility and cry out with Paul, “Lord, what wilt
thou have me to do?”. —David Croudace

Jesus, all for Jesus, all I am and have and ever hope to be,
All of my ambitions, hopes and plans;
I surrender these into Your hands. Jesus, all for Jesus.
—Robin Mark
