DON’T ABIDE ALONE 1 – DIE TO YOURSELF
MAY 17 TUE 2022
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. (Verse 24)” Jn. 12: 23 – 26 Jesus began here by making reference to the price He was about to pay for our salvation.
But he goes in verses 24 to 26 to teach us that for the Lord to be glorified in our lives, we also have to similarly ‘die’ to a few things. Your flesh, your ego, your preference, your taste, your will; all these things are important for they do constitute who you are; for better or worse.
But when the time comes, when the Holy Spirit requires it of you, you must be prepared to set them all aside to obey God’s instruction. Because even though God knows who we are and what we like, sometimes for our own good it is necessary for Him to ask us to do things that we would prefer not to do.
If you cannot make that decision to walk in this level of obedience, it is impossible for you to attain to the fullness of what God has called you to be in this life.
Heavenly Father, I refuse to value my life above what You require of me. Help me walk in full obedience, in Jesus name Amen.
