What does it mean to be available to God?

Mark 8:34-35If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.

Luke 5:11As soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus.

John 10:27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

To be available to God means more than just acknowledging his existence. It means reorienting your life so that no matter what you do, you do it as service to him. Availability means that you have an eagerness to go where he calls you and serve where he shows you. It is simply a matter of following God with a willing heart. He will bless you, not because of your ability but because of your availability.
