Coming to the end of yourself completely and totally is what it means to be saved by Jesus Christ through faith. When a person comes to the end of self, Christ begins. You no longer live but instead, Christ lives in you and through you. You die to self and selfish ambition and surrender completely and totally to Christ.




It is no longer about you and yourself anymore, but you realize now it is all about Christ. You no longer live your way but now you only live Christ's way.

Christ is number one. Christ is at the top, and you place your self at the very bottom, the lowest place possible. You realize your need for God and your need for more of Him in your life and less of self as well as selfish ambition.

Now, God owns your life. It is His life to do whatever He wishes or pleases with it and you realize that it is only right to give it back to Him by living to do everything for His glory and to please Him alone.

Christ becomes the center of your heart and life. Christ becomes the ruler and authority who reigns on the throne of your heart and life. You are no longer in control or rule your life and heart, because it belongs completely to God since you gave it over to Him completely and totally through salvation.

Salvation, as well as a change of heart from the inside out, is undeniably and unashamedly evident in someone who has genuine faith. A person with genuine faith rightly responds, "May God always increase and I decrease."

Humility isn't thinking less of yourself but instead, it is rather thinking of yourself less and fixing your thoughts on God alone.

God is life! He is the reason we live, move and breathe. Everything we have, in this life, belongs to Him alone because it was given to us by Him. It is only right that our hearts respond to Him in giving everything back to Him.

The secret to experiencing the power of Christ is to let go of yourself and let Christ live instead of you. This requires childlike faith. Only then you will be more than a conqueror through Him who loves you.

"He must become greater; I must become less." (John 3:30)

"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21)

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." (Galatians 2:20)

"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

"So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31)

"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." (Romans 8:37)

Slightly Obsessed #217: When the Hedge Comes Down

When we are in the fire, it’s easy to ask God, “Why?” It doesn’t hurt to ask that question, to examine our own hearts. If we can find no explanation for the trial, it’s possible that another drama is being played out behind the scenes.
Slightly Obsessed #216: Daddy Has You

As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
Slightly Obsessed #215: Sunday School Had It Right

A Ugandan friend once told us that growing up in Sunday school, he quickly learned how to answer the Bible questions in class. “The right answer,” he said with a smile, “is always, ‘Jesus.’" As a child, no matter what question was posed in class, he always answered, “Jesus.”
Slightly Obsessed #214: Friendly Fire

In 1788, the Austrian army turned on itself and decimated its own ranks, allowing its enemy to walk in and take the city. Are we allowing the same thing to happen on the spiritual battlefield?
Slightly Obsessed #213: God of the Mountains

While life is so uncertain, one thing is: God loves us so much, and He will never abandon us. No matter what happens in the coming days, months, or years, God is in control. And He will give us the strength to overcome any trial that comes our way.
Jordan For Jesus #039: Find the GOLD in People

Find the GOLD in people. If you only see fault, error, wrongs, sins, and what is bad, in people, then you have no time to love them. You cannot judge people and love people, at the same time, which is why the Word of God instructs us to look for what is good in people. When we look for the good, in people, we are choosing to see people through the eyes of God.
