As surely as God is faithful, our word to you does not waver between “Yes” and “No.” For Jesus Christ, the Son of God does not waver between “Yes” and “No.” He is the one whom Silas, Timothy, and I preached to you, and as God’s ultimate “Yes,” he always does what he says. 2 Corinthians 1:18-19 NLT
This scripture tells us that Jesus is the ultimate YES Lord. Serving a yes savior has so many benefits—such as.
We can trust in Him. We know that His words are trustworthy and loyal.
We can depend on Him; we know that whatever Jesus promised will come through.
We can be honest with Him since Jesus doesn’t change His answer when we come to Him in honesty; he won’t judge us; instead, He will help us to change.
For Years I was a maybe Christian, maybe I will do this if God will do this for me. But the Lord opens my eyes to see; I am just wishy-washy, I either firmly do it all to His glory or not at all. We must go all-in with God so He can go all-in with us. Yes, God is always faithful; that does not mean we should take it for granted. We serve a YES Lord, and that alone is impressive. Our Yes Lord means we can trust and obey Him because there is no other way to serve the Lord but to trust and obey.
Since we serve a YES Lord, wouldn’t it be right for us to become YES follower, so that Jesus can trust us, depend on us to do what He asked us to know, and to be honest with Him at all times? If we are not “yes” believers, then we are “maybe” believers. Sadly, maybe believers want to follow God and want to do with it right for God, but once the things of life get their way, God’s commitment is no longer there. To be a YES believer, one has to be consistent. We cannot be a yes believer today and a maybe believer tomorrow. Jesus wants our ultimate yes to use us to accomplish all that He created us for in the world.
The Lord is waiting to complete what he started in you, but until you firmly say YES, he cannot do His work in YOU. Are you ready to say yes to all the Lord wants of you? Are you prepared to surrender your all to Him? Then this is the place to start. Start by confessing the time you have not fully submitted to Him. Finally, try not to grieve the Holy Spirit. Therefore let us seek to repent and remain obedient to our yes.
