It's Sold Out!

Often, when we hear the phrase, “It’s sold out!” we have a feeling of great anxiety. Maybe we were looking for that final item on our kids back to school shopping list or maybe we have waited in line for an hour for that must have perfect gift or latest cell phone. Either way, we are left feeling frustrated.

In a different sense, being sold out for Jesus is a good thing. What I mean by being sold out for Jesus is that we are completely devoted to Jesus Christ. One thing that the Lord hates is a double-minded man.

James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”

The Lord also hates a lukewarm Christian.

Revelation 3:15-16 “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

So, we who are believers in Jesus Christ need to be sold out for Jesus and be devoted to Him with all our heart.

Are you sold out for Jesus?
