It’s Not All About Me

It’s Not All About Me …

Welcome to this new week of Freedom Fighter blogs. I want to thank you for joining me and the guys who are faithfully writing each that encourage you and me to walk in victory.

It's Not All About Me

Last week I was having one of those rough days and I was finding myself getting frustrated with everything. One morning last week, the Lord reminded me that it is not all about me …

It isn’t all about me:

My flesh wants:

To be right
To be respected
To be understood
To be appreciated

BUT …

I don’t need to be right
I don’t need to be respected
I don’t need to be understood
I don’t need to be appreciated

Jesus wants me

To serve HIM whether or not I am right or wrong
To serve HIM whether or not I am respected
To serve HIM whether or not I am understood
To serve HIM whether or not I am appreciated

If I can fully grasp this – then I can really say, “But none of these things move me nor do I count my life dear to myself – so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24 – Dr. Bill Welte is President/CEO of America’s Keswick

Daily Bible Reading: Romans 1-3

Think About This: The long dull monotonous years of middle-aged prosperity or middle-aged adversity are excellent campaigning weather for the Devil. C. S. Lewis

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace,  comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
