Day 2: Not About Me
A firm decision to do or not to do something.
A hope for something better.
I can do all things by myself?
A time for change.
A time for REAL change.
"Then JESUS went to work on HIS disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with ME has to let ME lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow ME and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, MY way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself?
What could you ever trade your soul for?" (Matthew 16:24)
It isn't about me.
"HE must become greater; I must become less" (John 3:30).
JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION~
"I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for CHRIST who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where GOD is beckoning us onward—to JESUS. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back" (Philippians 3:12-14)
JESUS SAID SO~
"JESUS told him, 'I am the Way—yes, and the Truth and the Life. No one can get to the FATHER except by means of ME" (John 14:6)
Thank you GOD for making this all about YOU and not about me.
Keep our eyes off of self as we place them where they belong~
like YOU created things to be from the very beginning.
So here we come
"So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything GOD has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment,
GOD will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet!
Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it" (Philippians 3:15-16)
How do you get in the way of HIS WAY?
