Daily Readings — My Selfish Ways!

Day 2161: MMM Make Mondays Matter!!!

Scripture: Then Jesus said to the crowd, “If any of you want to be My follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow Me!” Luke 9:23

Thoughts/questions: The term Christian has been substituted by many, including me, with ‘Christ follower.’ Whatever name you call yourself or others call you, Jesus makes it pretty clear regarding what needs to be done.

We are to TURN from our selfish ways and have His ways become our ways. When His ways are our ways, we WILL be following Him! Where He has gone, we are to follow.

Have some of your selfish ways stayed with you? Have you turned? Are you turning? We won’t become perfect, but we are still obligated by our love for Jesus to seek to rid ourselves of our selfish ways, so if you are consciously aware of any – TURN!!!

If I want to be a Christ follower, there are 0 excuses. Today is the day. Turn and follow!!!

Suggested prayer: Jesus, I want to be Your follower. I want to turn from my selfish ways. Help me . . .
