Everyday Die to Self
I am SOOOOO over it. TV, radio, social media, newspapers and magazines all report the same ugliness and injustices in the world with wars, loneliness, hunger, death. But do you think the answer is to join in and complain more or perhaps find more people to blame? Nope-not so much. How about we look at ourselves to understand that revival begins with us. Really it’s humbly changing direction from thinking “life’s all about me.” Putting a Band-Aid, here and there, on this or that moral problem is not the answer as much as throwing out our selfishness.
What’s the answer? Jesus. Jesus is the answer. National and international meetings; crusades against immorality are good and have their places, but none of them is an adequate substitute for dying to self…everyday.
