Charles Stanley notes:
“What is it in your life that keeps you from being completely devoted to Christ? To follow Jesus, you must practice self denial in the area that obviously separates you from being devoted to Him. Can you practice that thing and still be devoted or does it get in the way–between you and your loving Savior? “When you don’t follow His Call daily, moment by moment, that means your self interest is more important than His Plan and Will for your life. You make decisions all day long—YOU WILL OR YOU WON’T follow His Calling, His Voice. When you say, “BUT ” this shows self intent is still a priority over your Saviors’ Will for your life. What stands in your way?” I John 5:21 “Keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your heart. “
What stands in your way?
