We have heard this declaration at every wedding ceremony. Yet, we make this declaration several times throughout our daily interactions verbally or nonverbally. When we arrive at school or work, we are saying I do accept the responsibilities for this work or school load today. When we bless our meals and eat them, we state that I did select this food. When we don’t read God’s word, pray or fellowship among the saints by choice, we are telling God that we are going to do things our way.
Before we say I do to others, self, and God, let us make sure our I Do’s glorify God’s I Do’s on our earthly journey.
“ I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it” (Romans 7: 15-20).
