Just as he gave himself up without partiality to God and died to himself, Jesus requires us to give up ourselves without partiality to Jesus.
Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, ”
Luke 14:33 “In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.”
1 Corinthians 9: 24-27 “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”
Commit all your ways to Christ, start today he will complete the work in you.
It does not happen overnight nor by works alone, through FAITH in Jesus, HOPE in him despite our circumstances he will complete his work in us, LOVE him for his sacrifice and therefore our daily sufferings, selfless acts, humiliations for following Jesus’ commands all have worth for eternity.
