Master,
am I ready?

"I am ready." That is what consecration means. It is doing what Christ commands. It is going where Christ sends you. It is not a mere devout sentiment- warmth of heart, good feeling it is being good and doing good. Oh, be earnest. Be faithful. Be true. Be strong. Believe in Christ. Cleave to him. Do your work for him. Lift up your face toward your beloved Master's face, and say to him, "Master, I am ready. I know not what thou hast for me to do— to work or to suffer, to live or to die— but I am ready. I am ready to speak for thee, to endure persecution for thee, to live for thee. I am ready; I am ready."
J R Miller In Green Pastures

 

I am no longer my own, but yours. Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will; put me to doing, put me to suffering; let me be employed for you or laid aside for you, exalted for you or brought low for you; let me be full, let me be empty; let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal. And now, glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, you are mine and I am yours. So be it. And the covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
Methodist Covenant Service

 

But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in himů. That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that if possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
The Apostle Paul Philippians 3.7-11
