Let’s be honest – it’s no small things to surrender your life. And it feels even bigger when we take seriously the call on our whole lives – including all the days to come. We just aren’t used to giving up control of where we go, what we do, what we say and what we give away.
When you first came to faith in Christ, your heart was transformed, your sins were forgiven and your journey as a follower began. Signing onto a pledge like this reinforces your commitment to be the person God created you to be and the witness that Christ calls each of us to be.
The Spirit of God gives us the strength we need to make ourselves available to the work He has for us. When we love God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength, He is faithful to guide us.
And- you don’t have to figure it out all alone. Hopefully you’ve got people in your life who can help you continue to grow deeper in your faith. We’ve gathered a bunch of good resources right here on this website and can point you to even more. And if you sign the pledge here online, you’ll receive a series of emails that give you plenty to think about and discuss with a good friend, mentor, Bible study leader or pastor .
We also hope to have some good conversations online about living out this commitment. Join us on Facebook and Twitter - tag your tweets or posts with #CruPledge
Going, giving, doing, saying… all of that can add up to a way of being. Or it can feel like our relationship with God is dependent on being good at those things. But 1John 5:11-13 tells another story.
Does God really speak to us today in an intelligible voice? During my first ten days after moving to college, my roommate and I conceived a brilliant plan that involved us getting drunk every night. On the tenth night of this escapade, I went up to my room and sat on my bed.
