Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer
Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?
Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?
In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?
Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?
Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?
When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?
On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.
Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?
Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.
Now, that does not sound stupid does it?
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
