    Worthy, yes. But more importantly, RIGHT! Do you TRUST Him is the issue -- not do you obey Him. Think about it. If you trust Him, you will obey Him. :jesus:

    I'm already saved through grace alone by Christ alone. Doing anything for Christ represents a works based salvation and is heresy. (NOT)

    I believe that no one can be a mature Christian until they have offered absolutely everything--their hearts, their possessions, their money, their relationships, their job--on the altar to Jesus Christ. I consider complete surrender to be simply the basic step in the Christian life, not some sacrifice.

    After all, Jesus already owns us, all we are and ever hope to be. Therefore, to not give all to Christ does not mean to not sacrifice, it means to steal from the Lord Jesus Christ who bought us with His blood. I don't consider it to be a sacrifice that I left all to come to Japan as a missionary. I consider it simply obedience to the divine call.

    "19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Cor. 6:19-20)
