The most important word is….
Today our church choir sang a song that simply said “in response we say Yes”. Sure they sung it beautifully, but mere talent rarely moves me. What moves me is Biblical truth and the anointing of God. That song dripped with both.
I contend to say the most important word in the Christian faith is the word “yes”. In scripture, God asked time and time again for His people to choose Him – to choose His path, His laws, His ways. He beckons us to obey and submit…regardless of the cost.
He’s asking you this very second, “Are you willing to follow me, not knowing where I will lead you?”
“Are you willing to show kindness to a hateful neighbor, colleague or mate?” Proverb 25:21-22
“Will you chose to silence the world and spend time with the Lord? No TV, no driving…just with Him?” Psalm 42:1
Will your response be “Yes?” Yep, that is one of the most crucial…and costly words in the Christian experience. The very cornerstone of maturity it is. So, I’ll ask you again….will you say “yes”?
