Die to Self

At the cross

One of the important elements of the Christian faith is to always be ready to die to self, reputation, or anything that prevents a believer from speaking the truth in love.  The apostle Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 15 the importance of dying daily to bring life, and he meant what he said.  In the same way, we must be willing to die daily that life in Christ may result.

“Blessed are you…when people falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.” Matt 5:11

I find it interesting that this morning my brother and I woke up to a nicely done mis-characterization in the media.​ Check out the headline:

I hope that by dying to ourselves as believers our nation will see a people gripped by the love of God for others.  This is my prayer today!
