Livin’ like Hebrews 12:1-2

8 Jun

Are you willing?

Are you willing to press on in your walk with Christ and strive to become more like him with each day, even if it means leaving some parts of your old life behind? Such as friends who influence you and hold you back? A relationship you’re not supposed to be in? A pathway of life that leads to destruction? A career change? The approval of your peers? Repentance?

I was asked something along those lines this week.

And, I am willing. Because, as Paul said in Galatians:

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Oh, and it’s not about me. It’s not my life. It’s HIS life. The purpose of my life is not for Jen to be happy and feel good. It’s for Jen to glorify Jesus.

Living like Hebrews 12:1-2 (look it up!),
Jen

    Hi Jennifer, great post. I’m currently listening to a teaching by Andrew Wommack entitled:
    “Self Centredness; the source of all our grief!” It is making exactly your point. Even in so-called self-effacing shyness, it is actually self-centredness and very soulish. I guess anything that exalts itself over what God says about us: fear of man, low self worth, timidity – it’s all self, self, self. I want to be all HIM, HIM, HIM. Lord help me…
