“We did not expect that! They gave themselves to the Lord first and then to us, since this was YeHoVah’s will.” 2 Corinthians 8:5 ISV
The first and core part of your life belongs to the Master Messiah no one else. Until you give the Master that part you will always be a slave of men.
The Macedonia believers were asked by the apostle to give financial aid, but what shocked apostle Paul the most was the approach these believers took, they did something extraordinary, rather than respond to the need, they gave themselves to the Lord first. Afterward they were certain what next to do.
Nothing is too big for a man to give who has first given himself to Elohim.
Until you give yourself to Messiah first you will never know the will of YeHoVaH.
When I give myself first to Messiah on any situation I always know the next thing to do.
