Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

How many of us just get so wrapped up in stuff?

"...,and He said to them If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it." Mark 8:34-35

Did you know that in Biblical roman time, criminals had to carry their own cross to the place of execution?

Jesus uses the illustration of the Cross to for ultimate submission.

Just as a criminal was signifying submission to rome s power, we are doing the same but we are signifying we are giving Jesus all power in our life.

We are to follow Him moment by precious moment, even when work becomes too difficult or the future outlook becomes bleak.

Can we truly compare our dead dull life to that which we are going to gain in Christ by dying out to self and submitting our all to Him?

I don't thinks so.

Jesus wants us to follow Him, and to stop trying to control our own destiny, and self satisfaction, He wants to direct our lives.

How many of us truly even give Him the opportunity?

How many of us give Him the reigns but when the path gets a lil shaky, take the reigns back?

He wants our submission.

If we are dead to self, then it won't matter what people say or do, cause the Holy Spirit is leading you.

After having done all you can do, just stand on His Word! Ephesians 6:13

Is He our All in all?

Is He Saviour, Sanctifier, Healer, and unchanging friend?

Has He captured your heart?

Do we love Him because what He has done for us?

Do we love Him for what he now means to us?

We should love Him not because of theses things, but because of what He is in Himself!

Pure love is the greatest gift in which the human heart is capable of.

Christ is the most Superior or Supreme object upon which love can and should be spent. In Him are infiniteness of perfect moral excellence and beauty.

He meets our every need and He satisfies indeed!
"For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment." Luke 1:37

"Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down ( relax My hold on you)! [ Assuredly not!]" Hebrews 13:5

"For He, has said, I will not leave thee, neither will I forsake thee."  Hebrews 13:5b KJV

Let me tell you this You must trust in God, for He will will take care of You if you do. It is a marriage. If there is no trust You have nothing.
