The decision to serve Christ- to give your heart and body – is the most important decisions of our lives. It is not a decision that is made for you. It is a choice that is completely personal and done with conviction and faith. King David gave some beautiful advice to his son Solomon:
“And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9
This young woman presented herself before God and the Church of Christ to manifest the faith that is in her heart and her decision to serve the Lord all the days of her life. It was beautiful and heartfelt. The church prayed for her asking God to allow her faith to grow more and more each day and to help her persevere in the faith of Christ until the end.
