When my eyes are off of myself others eyes turn to God.
Our flesh steals the testimony of God. It consumes our conversations and our thoughts. It is the monster inside us battling for more of us and less of Him.
I see it in myself when my conversations are all about me and not of what God is doing in me. When I concern myself with who is reading my writings and I forget the motive behind writing them….
When I get frustared when ministry is not going at my pace….
The list goes on.
These past few days have been my selfish days of letting the “Me Monster” win. I have been stressed and frustrated at letting the little silly things build up inside.
But, today I am reading this:
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves
be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
I’ll say it again, when my eyes are off of myself others eyes turn to God.
Believers have a testimony that our flesh wants to silence. But the verse above tells us we don’t have to live by the flesh anymore because we have Christ living in us, working in us, and transforming us everyday.
Here we are in this moment with our choice before us:
Our flesh or Christ?
