"Dying to Live"

John 13:38 “Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me?  I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times! (NIV)  God stopped me in my tracks during this quiet time Scripture.  I wanted to say “yeeow,” of course I am, where you go, I go, but God just answered, REALLY!  God started the movie reel of my life which caused me to step back and say REALLY?  Really that?  Really what?  But Lord you don’t know how Really good I am.  Lordship is tough, but through God’s sanctifying work it is fabulous.  I must only be willing to hear and see, so I can confess, trust, and step into the empowering work of the Holy Spirit.  It is only then that I will see the wonderment of God’s hand in my life.  Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — this is your spiritual act of worship.”; Philippians 3:7 “But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.”; Colossians 3:3 “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”  Let go and let God.
