Just like you run out of fuel in the car and you have to refill it again and again, in the same way your dedication and commitment runs out in the course of time and it needs constant renewal! This idea of keeping fuel in our cars is so difficult for people that we get into clubs that promise to bring fuel if we run out on the road. I know I am an AAA member.
You have to dedicate and rededicate again and again.
Often people take their dedication for granted and then the mind starts demanding or complaining. When dedication is not complete, it leads to grumbling and complaints. That is the reason we find so much in our churches to complain about again and again. If we keep ourselves dedicated to the worship and work of God, He will keep our hearts and eyes on the proper things.
Total dedication brings enormous enthusiasm, zeal, trust, and challenge, and does not leave any room for ego.
