“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” -Luke 9:23
How much better could we love the world and those around us if we removed SELF?
How much better if we weren’t constantly concerned with what we wanted, our plans, our goals, our money, our priorities?
If our selfishness disappeared, we could put others first. We could love them in action, sacrificially with a Christ-like love.
How many people could we help? We could be available for God to help anyone He wanted us to help.
Let this be a reminder that we are Christ’s hands and feet in this World. He is the head of the body and we are the different members. So let’s represent Him to the World today; when someone sees you, let them see Jesus.
Father God, help me to put off my selfish desires and love people the way that you have loved me. When my self pops it’s head up, help me to quickly put it off and seek to love. In Jesus’ name, amen!
