Saving My Life
Scripture: Mark 8:  For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.
Observation: I continue to want to do things my way focusing on the things of this world. I pray God’s direction but I don’t hear Him because I’m so busy thinking of other things. I tell God I want to do His will yet I continue doing mine. I have but one purpose in this life and it can only be fulfilled through Christ. My pastor told me yesterday I have the gift of evangelism yet I don’t use it.
Application: I need to start doing more things for Christ and let Him speak to me as I’m doing them. I don’t hear Him on the couch watching TV or busy doing things in this world, only when I’m serving or when I’m quite meditating on His word.
Prayer: My Lord I offer you this life as a living sacrifice. Use it as you will, may you fulfill your purpose for me and may I complete this race in glory and honor to You.
