“I have been crucified with Christ…” – Galatians 2:20
Utmost: Classic Readings and Prayers : (A Quote from the Book): “To become one with Jesus Christ, a person must be willing not only to give up sin, but also to surrender his whole way of looking at things…we must first be willing to let go before we can grasp something else.” – Day 26
Table Talk: One of the most difficult things that a follower of Christ has to do is to forget himself. It is a challenge. It is a battle. It is a downright struggle against what he believes of and for himself and what the LORD has declared for him to be. A person has to come to the place where he realizes that he must release every aspect of his sinful past, his imperfect present, and even his unknown future in order to take on the present-action perfecting of the Savior.
Table Talk Discussion Question: Why is it so hard to let go of the “old self?”
Prayer: LORD God, You have declared that we are so much more than what we have thought. Help us to believe Your truths about who we are versus the lies of the evil one. Show us how to forget ourselves and to surrender completely to You. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
