Happy Jesus Day:
Are you self-giving, willing to deprive yourself, self-denying, or self-sacrificing? Do you disregard your advantages and welfare over others? “Grace gives us some space, acceptance, and room to take a hard swallow or step back with self-compassion. Self-denial means denying your natural will and following God’s will in all matters. Our focus should be obeying God’s will to walk after the spirit whenever possible. We need to study, pray, witness, help other believers and develop Christ-likeness. Your capacity to follow the spirit will grow, as will your love for God. It will always be a constant battle to subdue the flesh.
