Jordan For Jesus #022 "End Of Me (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-08-21 12:15:49
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 #233: When God Tears It Up
A musty odor had been coming from the vicinity of my husband’s man-cave for months. I chalked it up to his old collection of books and memorabilia, but the real cause will force us to tear things up to get to the root of the problem and fix it.
Slightly Obsessed #232: Beyond the Veil of Tears
When trials fall upon us, our human response is to find an escape. The bigger the emotional storm, the more frantically we search for something or someone to rescue us.
Slightly Obsessed #231: Suddenly
When we feel the most lost may be the very moment we discover that someone is searching for us.
Slightly Obsessed #197: Are We Spiritual Darwinists?
Two secular scientists recently stumbled upon evidence challenging their evolutionary assumptions. Do we subconsciously doubt God's power and quietly live a similar Darwinian existence? Are we ready to be challenged to believe in His power to intervene in our lives?
Slightly Obsessed #229: When Pain Is a Good Thing
The pain takes us down and drives us to our knees. We long for relief, for a way out. But in the secret place of suffering, we discover that pain is our friend.
