We say we live for Jesus, but what does your day look like?
“Hmmm, what do I want to wear today? What would make me look good …”
“What do I want to eat?”
“What do I want to watch?”
“What do I want to listen to?”
“What do I want to play?”
“What do I want to read?”
“How do I want to be entertained?”
“Who do I want to spend time with?”
“What do I want to buy for myself?”
“How do I want to use my time?”
“How hard am I willing to work?”
If we were to be honest, for many of us our days are filled with pursuing our own interests from the time we get up until the time we go to bed.
It’s not the kind of life God has called us to. It certainly isn’t following in the footsteps of Jesus …
“For even Christ didn’t live to please himself …” Romans 15:3a.
What would your day look like if you started it with the intent of not living it to please yourself? What would your day look like if you started it by placing your feet in the footsteps of Christ and followed Him throughout the day, wherever you were, and whoever you were with?
“Then he said to the crowd, ‘If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me’,” Luke 9:23.
