Luke 9:23-27 23
Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross daily, and follow me. 24 If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find true life. 25 And how do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose or forfeit your own soul in the process? 26 If a person is ashamed of me and my message, I, the Son of Man, will be ashamed of that person when I return in my glory and in the glory of the Father and the holy angels. 27 And I assure you that some of you standing here right now will not die before you see the Kingdom of God.”

What part of your life is not fully dedicated to Jesus?  Do you walk in obedience in some parts better than others?  Take a look and examine your life in Christ and see what areas need to given over to Him.  Some people do a great job when they are around other Christians and in church on Sunday, but put them in a situation at work and you would never know that Christ is the Lord of their life.  What good does it do if others cannot see Christ in you at all times.  If you look too much like the world who will know that you are not of this world.  It cannot be both ways.  Jesus demands 3 conditions to be called His.  You must be willing to deny self, to shoulder your cross daily and to follow Him.  Does this describe your walk with Christ?  If not then you need to ask Him to show you what areas you need to change.  All of us will need to keep working at this until we die, no one will ever fully be complete in their walk with Christ, but we can improve. Start by asking yourself, “What is the most important thing in my life?”  If you say Christ, but it does not show, then you are only fooling yourself. Ask again and do not be ashamed to say what it is, but bring it before Christ and seek His wisdom in helping you to make Him first.  If you are ashamed of Him, He will be ashamed of you when you stand before Him.  Start today and do a little self examination.  Ask yourself who or what the most important things in your life are and if it is not serving Christ, then start today to put Him first.

Have a God Day!
