///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 59| 28 FEBRUARY 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
1 John 3:16 (KJV)
The current order of the day in the world is everyone trying to out do, cheat and be better than others. People have become individualistic and selfish. All they want to do is to succeed irrespective of what happens to the people around them. They want to be seen in a better light than their compatriots and they will do anything to achieve that feat. This self love has even increased in these last days and pathetically many children of God and ministries are getting into the flow.
It confirms what Apostle Paul said in 2 Tim 3:2 where he said 'men shall be lovers of themselves' but the church and the people of God should know better. Understand that God is not so much enthused about selfishness. We must learn to live for others rather than for us. We must learn to lay our lives down for others. Stop thinking about your success, it is no success if it doesn't help others succeed too.
At this level, seeing other ministries and people succeed as you or even more than you is a joy. You should be at peace when others do well and even pray for them to do better instead of what currently pertains where people rather get intimidated and try to fight others who do well. If we will walk in the love of God, we will lay down our lives for others. Our heart should be more after the success of others than our success. When you do this, their success will be counted as your success.
Understand that having a fat account balance and all the sophisticated gadgets whiles a little of that can help others do well is no success at all if you ignore them. We ought to lay our lives down for others as Christ did for us.
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
I lay my life down for the salvation and betterment of others. I refuse to live any longer for me alone. I will see to it that others do well.
