10.19.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on the Holy Spirit. Part 100. More of Jesus.

DEVOTION: “You cannot cover sins, you cannot cover faults. You must get to the bottom of them. I cannot have the anointing, the power of the Holy Spirit, the life of Christ, and manifest glory except through self abasement and complete renunciation of self, with God alone enthroned and me dead to myself. It must be of God, and if a person will only examine the conditions and act upon them, I tell you things will come off wonderfully.” (pg 172)

Once again, we are talking about dying to ourselves, dying to the old man or woman inside of us so that the new can come forth.

The Spirit in us is trying desperately to push out the old. Get rid of the trash in our hearts and souls…yet, we hold on. We dig our heels in and deny, deny, deny.

What is holding us back? Pride? Fear? Lack of faith?

The answer is different for each of us. But….the outcome is the same. More of Jesus, less of me.

More of Jesus. Less of me.

    ” I have been crucified with Christ, and the life I live is not my own, Christ is living in me, I still live my human life, but it is a life of faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave His life for me” Amen Gal 2:20

    Release the you, retain the Him. Sounds easy ,but it’s not. We all struggle with this daily, even hourly. I know I have and do. If someone cuts you off or gets mad, turn the other cheek and move forward. Do not dwell on the past. That is why it is called that.
