Are you sold out to God. Do you have a personal commitment to God regardless of what is going on during thick or thin? What does a life look like when you have a Personal Commitment to God? Totally sold out? Commitment to serve to Him.

The gospel is not a self-serving way. It is not all about your blessing, your prayers being answered, or even breakthrough, favor, better job, etc.

We come together for Him to make us like him. The Holy Spirit is Very Interested transforming your life to the one we are predestined to be conformed after and his name is Jesus Christ.

The gospel is not about God meeting my needs. Even though that is a benefit. The gospel is about us loving him with all of our heart, soul and mind.

Matthew 22:37 “King James Bible

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”
That means loving God unto death. Are you willing to die for His name?

Even in trials, tribulations of hard times you don’t waiver get to a place of never doubting God but have faith that He is working it out for you. We demonstrate the power of God through our trials and tribulations.

What does it mean to give your all:

1. Give up idols – for example “sports”

2. Give up false gods and practices

3. Give up the world’s pleasures

4. Be willing to change your friends if your friends don’t serve the lord.

5. Give up your rights to get even with people – because not only is it to love God but love others as yourself.

6. Be willing to go to Jail for the gospel – not bow down to man

7. Be willing to die for the Word of God

You understand why you are on this earth – not for the blessings of the Lord but the nature of the Lord. His Greatness of who He is that created the heavens and the earth.

Even when there is injustice, you don’t give up but still serve the Lord. That means you never ever let sin against you produce sin in you.

Do you overcome evil with good? Forgive those who hurt you and then bless them.

Matthew 5:44 King James Version (KJV)

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Forgiveness is not a choice but a commandment.

Matthew 6:14-15 King James Version (KJV)

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

The gospel is all about love. That means being there for your brother’s and sisters.

You may be poor but you help to feed the poor.

You may not have anything, but you give to others for the purpose of demonstrating God’s love to others.

You allow the light of Christ shine in you so that God is glorified.

You have to come to the place that your life is so valuable as a sphere of influence in which you live. Your life is so priceless to God and the kingdom of God.

If your life wasn’t valuable, why would you embrace the cross. Why would Jesus be born through a woman, and put on flesh and have to sweat and do human things like going to the bathroom and live on earth as a man.

Why would he do that, so that he can redeem man back what he was created to be so that man could fulfill every reason God made him.

Ephesians 1:7 – In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Galatians 2:20 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for Colossians 1:14 – In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins:

Why would jesus allow himself to die such a horrible death? To redeem us, to restore fellowship with the father through Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:21 ”
“Therefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so death passed onto all men, for all have sinned.” K

What Jesus did is love that tells us you are priceless and valuable to God.

When man sinned, Adam, he lost the image of God. He lost his connectivity with the Father. Separated. What was created to be love became an object of need of love when love got cut off.

You were never created to be desperate for love, insecure, inferior, undesirable, unlovable.

That is why we are hurt, we looked for other people to meet an expectation in us. When God through the father can meet that need.

At the same time, Christ wants to live inside you. The hope of Glory. You should identify yourself through him alone.

If you received negative words from others, those words are not eternal. God’s Word is eternal. In john 1 he is the word. The Word has power. Then you are ready to have healthy relationships.

But before you were a produce of selfish needs that set you up to be hurt, making wrong choices, etc. You needed people to do this for you or to say certain things to you. When they don’t, you feel this hurt and rejection. When we have our eyes on others to meet a need, then it sets us up for failure and hurt.

Jesus will never forsake you. His love is everlasting. Even if you walk away from the Lord, his love never stops. That does not mean you will go to heaven. He will go after that one sheep. We can never be separated from God’s love (Romans 8:39)

Luke 15:3-7 King James Version (KJV)

3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

My Testimony: 35 years ago my dad almost succeeded to take his life. It was a miracle he lived. I was made at God and walked away. I went into the world doing all the wordly stuff. My friends liked me better but I felt my heart get hard. God sent several people my way to get me to turn back and I did in a couple of months.

I repented and he saved me. My life was different and made the choice to serve him a 100% of my life. I gave up my friends, I gave up my lifestyle of dancing, drinking and partying. It was worth it. I was lonely at first but I did make new friends.

There are people in other cultures that if they give their life to the Lord, they are cut off from families. Some cultures will even have a funeral for you. Those type of people I’ve talked too and they told me it was worth it.

You have to die to flesh. What is flesh? It is the sin nature that goes after pleasure. 

Galatians 5:24 – And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Mark 8:35 – For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

Romans 12:1 – I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.

You got to get to the place where you can abide in Christ. Meaning, you don’t need someone to edify who you are. God’s Word says who you are. 

When you gave your life to the lord, you become part of the royal family of God.

1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

When we give our lives to the Lord, you are in him. But behold all things become new. 

Become is still happening. That means you need to renew your mind. Your soul and spirit belongs to the Lord but your mind has to be renewed. Only way to be renewed is by reading and studying God’s Word to break down the strongholds of thinking, cultures, traditions, wrong religion, idols, etc.

We all come in with stinking thinking that has to be renewed to get the mind of Christ. That is the run from glory to glory. WE all need to run this race together.

To know who you are, you need to see him. How can you do that. You will be able to see him in scripture and what he has to say about you. You are part of his family. 

Ephesians 2:10 – For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)

We become God’s children (Galatians 3:26)

We were also chosen (Ephesians 1:11)

      We have been seated in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 2:6)

In him no more condemnation 

Romans 8:1 – [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

who walk not after the flesh, (the world), but after the spirit (in him – our whole life about him).

Once we know who we are, and undertand God’s love for us, and we are content in peace in Him. Then we can freely give love to others.

The whole gospel is based on love written on our hearts. 

We need to know we have an adversary working against us. You are at war until Christ comes back.

His tactics, is to get you stuck in your past. Either through regrets, unforgiveness, failure of the past. Satan is the king of the past. Jesus is the king of the present and future.

Satan wants you to role in the land of the garbage dump stuck in self pity in what everyone else has done so that you won’t forgive. Self pity is the super glue that holds you to the hell of your past. 

That is why we need to renew our minds as we are beoming new. We have to forgive quickly, and choose to not replay the past. Forgive.

When the enemy reminds what someone has done that brought a lot of pain and you have already forgiven them. Refuse to replay it.

It says in 

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 King James Version (KJV)

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

That means anything that is negative that is not love to cast it down. Satan wants to bring that bitterness back into your heart. Satan wants you to believe your sin was not redeemed when you repented for past failures, past sins of regret.

1 John 1:9 King James Version (KJV)

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

Isaiah 43:25 – I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

Romans 10:9 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Psalm 103:12-14 King James Version (KJV)

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.

14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

All these ploys of the enemy is to get you not being sold out to God.

We have to remember what the Lord does with our sin

Psalm 103:12-14 King James Version (KJV)

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.

14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

Micah 7:19 – He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

So, learn to forgive yourself. He’s forgotten it then we need to not allow Satan to torment you and discourage you from running the race of God.

The more you know who you are and how the Lord sees you, the more you can give with love and not out of need. If you give out of need, you will be disappointed with others.

You are never alone:


Isaiah 43:2 – When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.


He will always be with you, but you must believe to run this race.

I live in a country where people are selfish. But until I get free from me, will I ever be free from you, that need to have love and acceptance from others. I will never be empowered to love you.

We can make people idols like our husbands, wives or children to meet a need in our lives. 

There is one reason why your feet are on the planet, is to look like your father. The reason you are alive is to love. and God is love.

When someone accuses you, realize it is not them but a spirit working through them. Satan wants you to defend yourself. The more you are in Christ, the more you don’t care what others think.

You will get to the point that all that matters is God’s opinion.

That means you will not fight back. Satan wants you to become one with someone else’s sin by fighting back.

Why because there is that need. When you fall in love with Jesus and he becomes your all, then you won’t care with others think.

You won’t engage in the fight back. You won’t get into the spirit of accusation.

Even Jesus stayed silent during the accusation against him

Matthew 27:12 “And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.”

Matthew 5:11 KJV “
“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.”

Don’t let others stop you from being sold out to Christ. 

Continuation from Video

Since the fall of adam, we all been burn in adam – self defence, self protection, selfishness. Every man born into adam and you must be born again. We must die to self.

Jesus, the Holy Spirit needs to increase so that we take on the character of God in us. Demonstrating the Love of Christ.

During trials you get the chance to demonstrate the integrity and charater of Jesus in the face of that trials

He gave you the gift of life to manifest who he is. Our life is not about us but him who created us.

Nobody can live your faith. No one can give your life for you. You are the steward of your heart. Come with strong reason to worship him.

Get the word of god in you so that you can be sharper to look more like him and build great relationship with people who are like him.

The reason we gather is to stir each other up in love and good works.  We are not here for what he can do for us. We are here so that he can make us more like him. When you only seek him and not others there is a blessing. It is more blessed to give than to receive. When I need, want and expect from others, I don’t have peace. It is not the way we are created to live.

Love is freedom. Let’s say no to animosity, lets say no to strife and anger frustration and wrath, lets say no to selfishness. Why, none of those things are who you are to be.

You are created to forgive to make peace and show mercy.  The bible says if anyone is wise, let him show it through the conduct of his life. Not by what he says but what he does. James 3:13.

James 3:13-18 King James Version (KJV)

13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.


Don’t boast and lie aginst the truth.
