Following in Christ's Footsteps - A Path of Surrender & Sacrifice - Tuesday, January 24th

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many. Mark 10:45

Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:8-11

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. Colossians 1:15-20

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Getting and maintaining proper perspective is essential. Ultimately, Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords and yet He gave Himself as a ransom for us in the ultimate act of service. However, we get in trouble if we take the position of ones who are being served by Him. We must humble ourselves in absolute surrender to Him viewing His sacrifice as His means of reclaiming us. His sacrifice gives us the wondrous opportunity for us to sacrifice ourselves for Him. When we are empty of ourselves, our agendas, and what we want from God, we then become to Him vessels with room enough to be filled with His presence and loving benevolence and available for whatever use he has in mind for us. This alone is how we are able to genuinely follow in Christ’s footsteps.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I confess that you are King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. I choose to be a living sacrifice for you. I let go of everything in favor of holding fast to you and all that you desire for my life. Make me a vessel of honor for your glory and help me to genuinely follow in your footsteps. Amen!
