(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading -Deuteronomy 28-29 & Galatians 6)
“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Galatians 6:14
This world is not my home. I’m just passing through.
My life died when I accepted Christ’s death as the solution to my sin problem. Because Jesus lives, I live in Him. I have His Holy Spirit within me.
I cannot show any loyalties to the gods of this world. What is important to me must be to be doing what He wants. I must seek His guidance in every move. I can’t leave home without Him!
There is no future in the allures of this world. Every good gift I have comes from Him. I can take credit for none of it. My dependence must be on Him.
If I am drawn to the acclaim of this world then I am being drawn away from God. The reverse can also be true……and that must be the case for me.
