We pray and petition God to give us much, and indeed he has given us so much. The very gift of life is inconceivable. But, what do we give to Him?

 

Lord, take my heart lord, and do not give it back.

 

I love this short yet powerful prayer. Notice, it’s not –  take one hour of my time on Sundays. Nor, take this envelope with a check in it.

 

No, it’s take my heart. My very life and being. And, do not give it back. Make it your own.

 

“I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me.” Galatians 2:19-20

 

Lord, let my heart be your heart. Let me love as you love.

 

Be the Men,

 

Mark
