Empty for Christ

What does it mean to be empty for Christ?

Being empty for Christ is synonymous with walking in the Spirit, being surrendered to God’s will, or being dedicated to His service. Simply stated it is a phrase that describes my commitment to try to pursue the Lord’s will for my life.  Having received God’s gift of grace, I recognized that it is my reasonable service to seek His guidance for my life and to deepen my relationship with Christ through prayer, study, praise, meditation, obedience, and service.  

Romans 12:1-2 (NKJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” 

The purpose of this blog is threefold: 

1. To share the gospel and my personal testimony, giving all the glory and praise to God for what He has done and is continuing to do in my life.  

2. To encourage others to put their faith in Jesus Christ for their salvation, to surrender to God's will for their lives, and to continually deepen their understanding and personal relationship with Christ.  

3, To document my journey as a Christian, to keep my focus on the Lord, and to determine His purpose for me.
