Following The Lord.

Dear believer, following the Lord is very difficult. In Mark 8:34, Jesus said, ‘Whoever desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me.’ To ‘deny himself’ means to give up your PERSONAL plans, goals, dream, vision and pursuits. After that you then qualify to follow the Lord. You cannot live your own life, pursue your own dream, follow your own vision and deceive yourself that you are following the Lord. You are not ! Many people are living in self deception.They are doing their own thing but think they are actively following the Lord. But until they give up all their own desires, they cannot truly follow the Lord. This is NOT a natural way to live. It is spiritual. This is very difficult and near impossible to do unless the Lord grants you the grace. This passage of scripture goes against every motivational lie and deception going on in the Church today. To serve the Lord, we should deny ourselves, take up our cross and do that which He would have us do with our lives. That is the only way we can serve Him in an acceptable manner.
Blessings.
