The Lord’s Unbelievable Message to Me
“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23
“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
“Be absolutely totally committed with all _____ I have given you no matter the cost to your comfort, your time, your relationships with people, your personal desire, no matter the cost to anything at all,” the Spirit of God told me in one of His middle of the night messages to me.
What an unbelievable message, don’t you think? Friend, it’s not unbelievable at all when you consider this. God always and only speaks in line with the Bible. If what you hear doesn’t line up with the Bible, it’s not from God! His message to me is entirely in line with the Bible. For Christ’s followers must be willing to forsake all for Christ! To give up everything for Him. Not to live for self anymore, but to live for Christ forevermore.
I purposely left a blank space in the message He gave me because what He has given me to do in my life may be different than what He’s given you. You can fill in the blank if you know clearly what God has called you to do. And if you’re not clear, you can seek Him and find out. Bottom line is no matter what He has called you and I to do, we must be willing to pay the price that comes with it. The cost to the flesh. The cost of self-denial so we are fully available to love and serve and worship the Lord day in and day out.
No matter the cost to yourself, friend, faithfully follow Jesus. Today. Tomorrow. And forevermore!
