Every time we sin we cry “Crucify Him!” and yet, when we cry over sin, He would willingly be crucified again.
And my Master’s pruning is sweeter than all the delicacies this world can offer me. It is more loving than all the flattery this world can offer me. The prize is conformity to the image of Jesus Christ.
Before we can be cured we must want to be cured. Those who really wish for help will get it; but for many modern people even the wish is difficult.
Today I woke up late, didn’t get to do my Bible study, had an annoying early class, didn’t feel pretty and didn’t get to dress nice, am hungry and don’t feel great.
So of course I sat in that annoying early class being aggravated and thinking negative things.
Then I decided to stop, read some scripture, and make the intentional decision to feel pretty, be positive, and make use of the time in my day.
I prayed and now I feel better.
Be intentional, Christ is faithful and probably teaching you something.
Being confident in your identity in Christ is one of the most attractive things anyone could have.
