Matthew 16:25 “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for MY sake will find it!”
So! Spiritually Then…
The value of verse, of biblical blessings, comes through vessels remaining on the “verge of collapse”.
Where Self’s surrender is daily and certain; just permitting the slightest of “non-sovereign” speeches.
So! Spiritually then, at the “end” of one’s Self…is the closest to GOD in this life that we’ll be!
As HIServant greater grasping every day, “HE must increase, but I must decrease!”, (John 3:30)
Devotional: Luke 9:23 “And HE said to all, “If anyone would come after ME, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow ME.”
Revelation 3:15-16 “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot!
So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”
*** The greatest distance from GOD then is someone who doesn’t fully deny themselves daily and….keeps their spiritual temperature exactly at “lukewarm”.
So! Spiritually then, totally surrender Self and wholly embrace HIM! JESUS, JESUS!
Amen and amen!
