    This proposition, that my life would be poured out as a drink offering, is not unreasonable because I owe my life to God. The life I now live was purchased at a great cost on the Cross of Calvary. I have often prayed John Wesley’s Covenant Prayer, which I liken to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks for this is God’s Will for you in Christ.” I try to live my life for God and accept whatever happens as His will for me.

    What I fear is not actually doing that. I fear that my actions speak louder than my words. I fear that I am just living my life on my terms, for my purposes, and then calling that a drink offering being poured out for God. I actually think this is a good sign because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. What would be worse is if I never even thought about it. That’s what spending time with God and His word helps us do. Lord let it be so with me!
