Jesus Christ is the perfect exemplar of yielding ourselves unto God. What can you do to let the Lord know that you want to follow His example and “be of use” in furthering His work?
27 And the Lord said: Whom shall I send? And one answered like unto the Son of Man: Here am I, send me. And another answered and said: Here am I, send me. And the Lord said: I will send the first.
My beloved brothers and sisters, I invite each of us to “yield [ourselves] unto God … as instruments of righteousness.” Yielding ourselves involves letting Him know we want to be of use, seeking His direction, and accessing His strength.
As always, we can look to Jesus Christ, our perfect example. In the pre-earth life, Heavenly Father asked, “Whom shall I send?”
And Jesus answered, “Here am I, send me.”
Jesus Christ accepted, prepared for, and performed His preordained role as our Savior and Redeemer. He did the Father’s will and completed His divine assignments.
As we follow Christ’s example and yield ourselves to God, I testify that He will also use us to further His work and to bless others.
