Are You Willing To Be Made Willing?

The Bible tells the story of a rich young man approaching Christ and asking him what he must do to inherit eternal life. When Jesus told him to go and sell all he had and give the proceeds to poor, he left saddened and without eternal life; because he was unwilling to give up his riches. He is not the only one that has came to Christ with a request only to leave unfulfilled because they were not willing to give up some treasured.

F. B. Meyer said, "If you are not willing to give up everything for Christ, are you willing to be made willing?" Often our prayers go unfulfilled because we are not willing to be made willing. We ask God to save souls but at what cost? Souls are surely not going to be saved if we are not willing to walk across the street and share the gospel with our neighbor because fear of being embarrassed. 

When you bring you request to the Lord, be willing to give up everything for Christ -- AND be willing to be made willing.
