The freedom that seems to be afforded in America is the ability to choose. Everyone has options, either this or that. You don’t have to do something seemingly if you don’t want to do it or there is a way of escape in some form or fashion from having to accept the responsibility from an action or a thing. Though it has increased our freedom the abundance of choices has also taken an effect on our accountability. People would rather look to have another person do something that they can do simply because they don’t want to be accountable for the outcome. Others are afraid to face more challenging task due to the comfortability of an easier way. There was a scene in the movie “Troy” where Achilles was summoned to fight a giant named Boagrius. As he is mounting his horse a boy says the man that you are fighting is the biggest man I’ve ever seen, I wouldn’t want to fight him.” Achilles responds, “and that’s why no one will remember your name.” Many of us look at the challenges faced simply by living completely in our purpose this way. We are scared we may lose something if we give God a complete yes, maybe our status in the world or friends that we have gathered over time. The lord is saying how long will you halt between two opinions (1 Kings 18:21)? Though the choices are many, the way is clear.
It is time to identify your identities and walk therein. You may ask yourself, why me? Due to the increasing groanings within the earth, there is an expectation and a mandate for the sons and daughters of God to be made manifest (Romans 8:19). This is not something that can be put off on someone else, there is a work for YOU to do and people whom will only come to Christ when YOU say yes. Heavy right? I know. That is the responsibility of having purpose, but rest assured you are not alone and that is why they will remember your name (2 Samuel 7:9)
