2 Corinthians 4:11
For we who live are constantly being given up to death for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Jesus showed us that the way to life…is through death. It is a constant process of dying to our egocentric desires for power, prestige and possessions so that God’s desires for us can be manifested instead. When I let go of my desires…there is an open space for God to fill. Then the risen Christ has a place to reside in my body…so that I can become the hands and feet of Christ to the world. Giving up our egocentric pursuits will feel like dying because we are letting go…but new life will always come as God gives us what we truly need…as any loving parent would do!
