Sold Out! (Guest Post by Bruce Martin)

Bruce Martin is a friend and a lay-leader/co-laborer and prayer ministry coordinator at First Baptist Church of Mabank, Texas.  He works for Edward Jones Investments. He loves the Lord with all his heart and serves people with a generous heart. I felt challenged by the words he had to share with the prayer team this month and he agreed to allow me share them with you all.

This Fall my twin brother and I will attend the 46th High School Reunion of West Monroe High School in West Monroe, Louisiana (Yes, there are other states than Texas! Ha Ha!) Naturally, I'd like to look my best when I go, so four days each week I have a coach push me through a workout. After my first week I told her I was "SOLD OUT" to her instruction and the nutrition changes I would have to make to look my best.  As I drove home from the gym, it dawned on me: Am I as "SOLD OUT" for the Lord?!

Melody Green and David Hazard wrote the book No Compromise: The Life Story of Keith Green. In it, Keith is described as an example of "SOLD OUT" for Christians. He helped the poor, took people off the street into his home and desired to do everything he could to serve God with all his heart. The book describes "SOLD OUT", fanatical people as:
1. They love Jesus
2. They love to pray and worship
3. They love to share the gospel
4. They love God's Word
Matthew 22:37 is a scripture verse on "SOLD OUT" for Jesus:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."(NIV)

The question is: Are you "SOLD OUT"? Am I "SOLD OUT" for Jesus?!
