I used to want a zillion people to read my writing because I was consumed with self and felt I needed to prove myself and desperately wanted acceptance, validation, and a feeling of self-worth and significance. The Lord took it all away! He taught me the life of a disciple of Christ is about Christ not self!
Now I want a zillion people to read my writing because I am so exceedingly in love with Jesus and so exceedingly love people and desire them to be in His forever presence that I want to tell as many people around the world as I can about the Lord and how to believe in and follow Him day by day and forever!
I encourage you to see where you stand with self versus Christ. Are you living for yourself, or are you living for Jesus? Are your motives in your life’s work for you or for Him? Do you need an overhaul as I did so you are totally devoted to Him and not totally devoted to you?
Place your heart and your life in the hands of Jesus and the Bible and make a total commitment to Him and His ways and watch what He will do in – and through – your heart and life!
“and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Cor. 5:15
