Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. Mat 16:24-25. You were created to make a difference for God, to be an instrument in the hands of the master. As you allow Jesus to reign in your heart He will replace those things that have held you back with new purpose and vision. Suddenly you will see things from His perspective and desire to let God’s love flow through your life. God loves you so much and as you embrace His love and let Him captivate your heart, it will be your desire to follow Him and to allow Him to work through you to bless others. Praise God today that He knows what’s best for our life and as we walk with Him He will use us in ways we never thought possible.
