You have to take ownership of your life before you can wholly dedicate it to God. It’s not mine vs. God’s, it’s “Mine for the glory of God.” Taking ownership allows your decisions to be made out of sacrifice and allows them to be a shared offering, because you have a direction of worship that you can offer them to. If everyone in the Body of Christ was just following the format of religion without giving of their whole hearts, their whole selves, and their whole minds, we’d have a pretty piss poor understanding of the truth going before us.
I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
