Some of us don’t know the concept of dying to our own flesh daily, given up those things that be not of God, the things that are dead and, or having no life’s worth values to them. These things won’t do us any good. Giving stuff up for Almighty Elohim God can be life challenging when we’re running this race; we’re running to strengthen our inner Man to finish the race and we shouldn’t never look at it like a bummer, but instead a privilege to the one who gave up His life for ours so that we can live again. Apostle Paul tell us to do these things; Phil. 1:21, For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain. We will gain the eternal Victory of having Life Eternal; John. 17:3, And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. To put it in layman’s terms, you must be born again to see the kingdom of God. How would a man ever come to know Christ, except he be born again? Jesus told Nicodemus in John. 3:3, Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Once we’re born into Heaven’s Nursery we are fed by the milk of God’s word, Heb. 5:13, For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 1 Cor. 3:2 Paul says, I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. Paul is saying to them, you’ve been at this level for a while, yet now are you not able to hear the meat of the Lord’s word because you are still carnal in your ways of thinking. Paul was letting them know,” hey, look you all suppose to be on the meat by now instead you’re still drinking milk. Paul really wanted them to grow up as the church should; geographically and individually in their walk with Christ, and become more mature in Him Paul’s problem with the church was, he could not speak unto them as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even unto babes in Christ, 1 Cor. 3:1….. This is how it is with some of us today we don’t wanna get into the word so that it can grow us from milk to meat, from carnal to maturity, as becoming the full matured Bride of Christ. It is His building of the Church and we help add on to her by pointing souls to Him because we’re His body, that’s the souls added to the church daily hallelujah glory to God…
So when we don’t feel like doing when we really should be doing, just say, Lord Jesus help me die to my flesh so that I can live and be a light to others to bring them to Your Kingdom.. We realize that we can’t even die and give it up without Christ helping and showing us on how to do it and to continue to live for Him as we let go of this old world .
Make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today if you haven’t already. Peace and blessings to you. Amen🙏
