Dedicated to God

Tomorrow I'm speaking on "A Life Dedicated to God," with Jesus as our model.

I found the following definition of "dedicated" from Webopedia.

"Dedicated - Reserved for a specific use. In communications, a dedicated channel is a line reserved exclusively for one type of communication. This is the same as a leased line or private line.

A dedicated server is a single computer in a network reserved for serving the needs of the network. For example, some networks require that one computer be set aside to manage communications between all the other computers . . . Note, however, that not all servers are dedicated . . .
The opposite of dedicated is general purpose."
This is pretty interesting when applied to the Christian life, isn't it? We are made for a "single type of communication"--to tell of Jesus and the kingdom of God. We have a singular purpose--to take up Christ's mission to the world.
Not everyone is dedicated. But this is our call. And Christ is our model.
How do you think this definition of "dedicated" fits the call that God has upon our lives? What gets in the way of us being dedicated to God?
