The greatest thing you can do with your life at this very moment is lay it down for Jesus. Jesus disregarded the fact that He was God in order to help us! Think about that for a moment! It’s a humbling thing to know all Jesus did for us. His love for us compelled Him to die a criminal’s death on the cross in order for us to be saved!
Verse 7 of Philippians 2 says, “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant”. Did you know that’s exactly what we must do? We have a service to do here on planet earth. That service requires everything you’ve got. It disregards the comforts of self and puts its emphasis on others. Humanity needs you. This world is in dire need of what you have to offer. The Gospel of truth must go forth. The Love of God must be shared. The oppressed must be set free.
Why look for someone to bless you when you can be the one that blesses? Why do something with strings attached? Why not bless someone who doesn't have the means to pay you back? Why not tell your coworker about Jesus? Why not lay your life down to help a lost and dying world? I’m not saying you have to DIE. The only thing you will die to is self preservation and self service.
The moment you live for the needs of others is the day you begin to live! What good is your wealth when you're the only one that benefits from it? Who cares about all you accrue when you’re dead and buried? The only thing that matters is the impact you have on the lives of others! That’s true prosperity! True success is what you do for others! Remember that this holiday season!
