Commitment to Reach My Full Potential in Christ

I have examined the evidence and counted the cost. I choose to commit the rest of my life to Jesus Christ.

I accept You as my Savior and acknowledge You as Lord over every area and aspect of my life. 

Strengthen me to walk in obedience to Your Word and anoint me to fulfill Your purpose.

Cause me to be available, yielded, submissive, surrendered and sensitive so Your Spirit can speak to my heart. Lead, guide and empower me to accomplish Your goals, dreams and vision for my life.

Remind me to daily examine my motives and inspire me to maintain a pure heart and a genuine spirit of humility and meekness.

Enable me to live a life of integrity before You and the world.

Motivate me to develop a balanced life and glorify You with all of my being – physical, mental and spiritual.

Encourage me to live a life of discipline and self-control – which is the true essence of strength.

Keep me from compromising and conforming – inspire me to dare to be different and make my life count.

Grant me the courage to stand alone when necessary.

Instill within me the determination to never give up and to remain faithful until I go home to be with You.

Do not let me tolerate hidden or pet sins. Help me by the power of Your Spirit to overcome anything that would ensnare or enslave me.

I desire You, Lord Jesus, more than anyone or anything else on earth.

How Do You Reach Your Maximum Potential?

by Bill Rudge

Is it by tapping into latent powers within your mind or body?

Is it by becoming one with the universe and realizing you are God?

Is it through some esoteric technique or ritual?

No! It is by having a personal relationship with the resurrected Christ; coming to know Jesus in a real and personal way and living by the truth and principles in His Word.

The Bible is not a record of humans’ quest for God, but rather God’s revelation to humanity. Christianity is not merely one of a myriad of religions, but it is a relationship with the Master of the Universe. Jesus Christ is not one of many ways to salvation; His death and resurrection provide the only hope of eternal life.

In our next blog I will list the biblical principles God used to transform my life. Although as a teenager, I had violated every one of these on a regular basis, after giving my life to Jesus Christ at 18, I realized the essence of true strength and wisdom. God’s Spirit began to transform my life as I implemented these biblical principles.

Jesus really can change the life of one with seemingly little hope or potential. As you read each principle, contemplate how God would have you apply it to your life; then ask Him, by His Spirit, to begin transforming you.

The origin of the list came about during an outreach to Haiti. I had shared with several missionaries these biblical principles which have molded my life and ministry. They were so touched they suggested I make them available in poster format so they could be reviewed daily. The missionaries told me these were some of the most powerful truths they had heard and that every believer needed to be reminded of them.

You may want to place the list where it can be seen frequently. It will inspire and encourage you to walk in faithfulness with the Lord and honor His Word. May the Lord bless, guide and empower you as you grow in your relationship with Him and in reaching the full potential and purpose for which He created you.
