Walk in Love by Joyce Meyer - July 29, 2014
And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as
Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a slain offering and
sacrifice to God [ for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.
Jesus said, “ If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny
himself [ forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his
own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me] (Mark 8:34, emphasis mine).
Living a disciplined life means laying aside personal feelings,
deciphering which choice is most important in God’s eyes, and
then allowing that choice to take preeminence over the others.
As Jesus laid down His life for you, He is asking you to lay down your interests for His greater cause.
