FREEDOM FROM SELFISHNESS

KEY SCRIPTURE :1 Corinth 13:5 KJV “Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;”

The real challenges to the survival of men has not come from natural disaster, or even from the devil. Men have been the enemies of each other since the creation of the earth. The first death in the Bible was a brother killing his fellow brother because he was selfish and jealous. The whole world is yet to unravel the cause of Covid 19. Fingers are already pointing at the greediness and craftiness of a few who wants to control the majority. Selfishness is a very dangerous trait that must be attacked on every front.

 The sad truth about selfishness is that, it is not only the second and third parties who suffers, but the very person who is acting selfishly. Every action is a seed that one always reaps more than he sowed. Gal 6:7 KJV “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”? Everyman without Jesus as Lord of his or her life is selfish. Your freedom begins when Jesus becomes Lord and no more yourself. Rev 3:20 KJV “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” .This is not a lip service issue, but to sincerely surrender the Lordship of your life to Jesus.

There are some who are supposed to be Christians, yet are very selfish. If you are such a one then you must likewise surrender the Lordship of your life to the Lord Jesus. From today, you must stop living for yourself and start living for Jesus. Philippians 1:21 KJV” For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain”. This scripture should become your life pursuit and persuasion from now. Please note: only Christians who live for the Lord would make it to heaven. All those who are living for themselves would miss the rapture and if they die before the rapture they would go to hell. (Philippines 3:18)

CONFESSION

Jesus you are the Lord of my life. I live to honor and please you. I do not live for my ambitions or lust but what the Lord instructs me to do. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
