MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY TOPIC
Get “SELF” Out of Your Way!
This week, I’ve decided to share short motivational messages to marinade on. Messages don’t have to be long in order to be strong.
Today’s short message focuses on “SELF” – self-seeking, self-serving, self-centered – all of these words describe YOU! While remaining in this condition, you’re prone to get depressed, insecure, fearful, defensive, or a lot of other negative things. So what’s the answer? Die! Imagine how that sounds to someone who has spent most of their life searching for a better car, more money, or approval, and all the other things we pursue. Listen to the Word: “He who has died [to self] is freed from sin” (Romans 6:7). Sin appeals to flesh, but when your flesh is crucified, you suddenly come to life spiritually and begin to walk on a new level of victory. The secret is, you have to die daily. (I Cor 15:31)
Jesus said, “Except a corn of wheat dies, it abides alone.” But if it dies, it becomes productive. Loneliness is not the absence of affection, it’s the absence of direction! Find a cause bigger than yourself, and give your life to it! Support a missionary; become a Sunday school teacher; do something that’s not for you – and watch what happens!
Start today, and get ready to discover a joy you’ve never known. (I can attest to it is a wonderful feeling; and my life is a living testimony)
