My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Before you can become a Christian, first you have to die.
You have to die to self and be resurrected unto Christ first in your life.
It is not natural so we must depend upon Christs super natural powers to transform us from the caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. This is not a one of experience but a daily one.
The manner in which we mature from a child of Christ into a man or woman of Christ is to trust Him. Many times what He desires of us does not make senses. That is where trust and obedience matures us. It begins with baby steps and slowly progresses into larger steps as we mature more and more.
I have walked with my bestest friend for many decades and am still maturing in Him. Being a Christian is a life time commitment. We will not be mature Christians until we are in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The more we trust and obey our Heavenly King the easier it is to follow in His footsteps as He guides us into service for Him.
As He is our King so too does that makes us His servants. We are not to accept Him as our saviour and sit on our hands waiting for Him to take us to Heaven but rather we are to serve Him in dedicating our daily lives unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King Psalm 98:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) for the privilege of being Your humble obedient servant. It is the greatest honour there can ever been given.
May my service always bring joy to Your precious heart. It is in Your majestic name I pray. Amen
May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to serve the most majestic Emperor there can ever be today and every day. Joseph a son of JehovahThis article and photo @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2021
