What is governing my mind? What is governing yours friends? We do need to examine ourselves regularly so we are not deceived by the deceitfulness of sin.
It is so easy to be carried away with activities that nourish our flesh, our ego, while neglecting the concerns of God, his people, and choice possession.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation – but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die? But if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live. 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:12-14
We must live and breathe to please God by faith. A heart governed by the Spirit is not about self-aggrandizement but humble, modest, and selfless!
Father, you are our center, our hedges, boundaries, our all! Let us reduce that Christ may increase in us I pray in Jesus mighty name Amen.
Matthew 9:16 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.
17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
Therefore, you cannot embark on a new way of being/ living/serving with the same old narrative, attitude, prejudice, arrogance, and what not.
Your old ways of not serving humanity must of necessity change. You may have done quite alright for yourself, it’s time to start doing all for the greater good of all. Put off self, and put on “selflessness”!
This, my friend is the highest level of self actualization. This is what will outlive you.
What you do for others outlives you, even generations unborn.
Get going now with “The Good of All” in sight, and “Self” aside!
