“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #14: Give Jesus More & More Space - On Being a Friend of God.



"He must become greater; I must become less." - John 3:30 (NIV)

These are the words of John, the baptist.

Before one is saved, they exercise 100% of their own will. I believe, however, that in the 100% might be the will of other people.

After one receives salvation, they may continue to exercise 100% of their own will. One hopes that this will be only for a season!

Note this: Growth means the progressive shedding of one's own will, replacing it with the Lord's.

The more one grows in Christ, the more of Christ they exhibit in all the spheres of their life.

How would Jesus respond under these circumstances? Would God be happy with this? What direction does God want me to take? What does the Word of God say about these things? Should I do this; shouldn't I? What kind of words would Jesus use? How did Jesus interact with people when  He walked the earth?

These are the kind of questions that those whose focus is on the will of God constantly ask themselves.

The Lord must become greater in your life; you must become less, progressively! This is the message of the day.

God bless!
