Dying to Live

Dying to Live

Jesus calls us to follow Him, to daily take up our cross, lay down our lives, and die to ourselves and worldly desires, just as He did. In Jesus, we have been crucified to the world and its demands. No longer are we slaves to a system that edges God out of life and leadership. We have been infused with His Spirit, given new life, and enabled to live lives that exalt God. What temptations to edge God out do you need to die to serve others like Jesus serves you?

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. —Galatians 2:20

Prayer: Jesus, let me die to the temptation to exalt myself so that I live to exalt the Father and find life through trusting in You, my Savior who loves me. Amen.
