2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
In these end times, the Lord is looking for those who are ready to consecrate themselves to His use.
If you are ready to partner with God in His service, you can be sure that your reward will not only be great on earth but also in heaven.
However, for you to be a vessel unto honour in the service of the Lord, you must be ready to admit your insignificance before Him (Isaiah 40:17
You must also be ready to follow the Lord all the way, cheerfully and heartily
You should see it as a great honour for God to count you worthy of being called into the service of His kingdom.
Furthermore, God is holy, and so, for you to be a vessel in His service, you must also be holy in thought, character and conduct.
Those who want to continue in sin and also live a hypocritical lifestyle cannot be blessed in God’s service
You must surrender your life to Christ genuinely.
This is a prerequisite in offering acceptable service to the Lord
Any defiled or polluted person cannot behold the glory of God’s holiness
In the scriptures, those who offered acceptable service, such as Enoch, Daniel, Elijah and Job, made up their minds that they would not allow anything to pollute their lives
Note however that you cannot all by yourself keep yourself from the vanities of this world; neither can you live a holy life through your morality
You can only live a holy and acceptable life by yielding to the grace of God
God’s grace enables us to offer acceptable service before Him
Expounding on this grace
Titus 2:11-12 says,
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world”
Although there are several winds of false doctrine blowing across the world today, the Lord expects us to continue in the pure and undiluted word of God
(2 Peter 3:16-18)
This is the anchor that keeps us from being tossed about (Hebrews 6:18-19)
This undefiled word of God will help us keep that which is committed into our hands as we offer our service to God in these last days
In the Body of Christ today, many people serve God amiss
