Monday – 29/8/16

And Jesus called [to Him] the throng with His disciples and said to them, If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself [forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me].” (Mark‬ ‭8:33) I read a quote from Derek Prince recently saying: There are 2 kinds of Christians. There’s the Christians that think Jesus revolves around us and our needs, and there are those who realise that we revolve around Jesus. It’s not what I want. It’s what He wants. It’s not what will He do for me, but what will I do for Him. In my life, I’ve been like Peter and many (many) times ‘followed Jesus from afar!’ Arguing, sulking and behaving downright horribly when I didn’t get what I felt was ‘my’ right! Jesus didn’t judge me or forcefully reign me back in, but actually honoured my rebellious self-harming choices. Finally, it was His love (not my fear of punishment) that drew me back, and once I was back in his presence it was easy to accept that Jesus did know better than me and that I could begin to ‘cleave steadfastly to Him’ and live! Amen! X
