Die to self and live for Christ

Die to Self  Wherever You Go 

Matthew 7:12, In everything, therefore, treat people in the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets (Golden Rule)

 

Philippians 2:3-4 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

 

Romans 12:9-14Let love be  without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;  not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;  rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,  contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

 

James 1:22, But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

 

{the way a believer deals with personal words, thoughts, and actionsthrough the transition points of each day. we are not to delay serving others until we reach our destination but, instead, we are to serve both before and during the journey.   J     **being a blessing to others**

Pray daily that the Lord would help you recognize situations in which you can die to self in order to bless others.                                        These situations can be as simple as opening a door for others, helping lift a heavy load, picking up and returning a fallen or lost item, allowing others to board transportation ahead of you, greeting others cheerfully, or handing a Gospel tract

 

Better planning and time management can enhance one’s dying to self and being a blessing to others. Yet, without a servant’s heart and perspective, a believer will not die to self as a way of life}
