Enough about commitments! Let’s stop fooling ourselves! We people cannot really commit ourselves by just ourselves to God, to Jesus, because everything we have is sin! Everything that we can offer is a bunch of “filthy rags,” and they won’t get any better than that as much as they won’t get any worse. We’re totally useless, sinful; nuff said.
But the ironic thing here is this: despite of our very desperate situation, God became flesh and dwelt among us, who are sinners and the worst of all, and not only that, He took our place and died for us, on our behalf, just so we can have a relationship with Him, the very reason why Adam, humanity exists, and an eternal life. So how then could we sing songs of praise and worship and offer ourselves to Him? The answer is it is by Him that we can do such things.
I’ve realized that by myself, I really can’t offer my sinful self to Him; I realized I really don’t deserve any part of Him, but because He died for me even while I am still a sinner, the thing is indescribable. The fact is, I can only offer myself to Him because of Him and His mercy. He Himself said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
