When the Lord God Almighty asked me to be his Messiah, I knew that there was only one response that I could possibly give--Yes. I didn't know what it would mean to be the Messiah, nor what I would have to accomplish, but I did know that whatever it took, I would be willing to set aside my agenda, and adopt his. I knew that having a reputation as the best and highest paid mason in the City was nothing compared to being in the service of the Lord God Almighty. My mother didn't take kindly to me thinking that I was the Son of God, nor did the synagogue leaders. They all thought that something had gone very wrong.
Today, there are many people experiencing the same dilemma. They have a desire to serve God on his terms and under his conditions, but they are being told that their theology is too extreme, or that they need not be as devoted as they are. The world wants them to live in mediocrity, to never be too devoted to anything, for fear of losing their identity. But it is in the context of devotion that we gain our truest identity as children of God. It also is in the context of devotion that we gain eternal life. The key that opens the gates to eternity is a devoted heart. The Lord God Almighty, the God and creator of all the universes, who lives and breathes devotion, reigns.
