#VOD: Galatians 5:24

And because we belong to Christ Jesus, we have killed our selfish feelings and desires. ” (Galatians 5:24)

This verse makes me think of one phrase in particular…. Basically that it is our CHOICE to kill our selfishness. Yes, I fully believe that Holy Spirit is a direct help in this, BUT it still takes a choice on our end.

At the end of the day, we have to choose to kill off those selfish feelings & desires that come into our lives. We have to live in complete obedience to Christ and His teachings! It’s safe to assume that we all have those areas where this is more of a struggle! The beautiful thing is that it’s okay to struggle, but it’s not okay to just give up and not try…

One of the most encouraging things that the scriptures teach us as a whole is that we are all works in progress. There are many things that God is working on each one of us, and many of them are all completely different. Us belonging to Jesus does not automatically mean we will never struggle again, it just means that we will have the power to kill off the selfish feelings and desires that RUN the people in this world…

A majority of the population live their lives based off of their selfish feelings & desires. Even to the extreme extent of severely damaging those around them to feed those selfish feelings and desires…

We do not have to be that way. We have the ability to choose to kill off the selfish feelings & desires that plague this world…

make the choice. Choose to follow Christ. Choose to kill off the selfish feelings and desires in obedience to Christ…

Love wins fam…. Grace wins…
