Matthew 10:39 “Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
Most people in this world will do anything they can to feel important or significant. They buy houses, cars, clothes etc. They get many academic degrees to feel smart. Most live in dread that they will be “found out.”
God’s way is completely different. It says that we must strive not to be important, but humble, as Jesus was humble. We must surrender all pride so that He can fill us up with His love.
Jesus, help me today to surrender my life, so that You can fill me up with Your love. I praise You for the gift of faith, which helps me surrender to Your will.
Do you realize that being humble and surrendering your pride to God is a blessing, and that your heart will be open to even more grace?
