On Saturday, December 8, I was seeking to hear the voice of God on what to share on Sunday, December 9. At 1:35 pm, I heard these words: “It takes a while for the old man to die, but let the “while” take place.”
Paul certainly identified with this process of dying to self when he said, “For the good that I wish, I do not do; but I practice the very evil that I do not wish.” He goes on to say, “Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?” Most importantly, Paul gives the answer to his question and says, “Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” He also tells us when the dying to self takes place and said, “I die daily.”
Letting the “while” take place can only be in the very moment in which we live looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. We must be crucified to self and live a resurrected life in Christ alone who enables us to do all things.
(Romans 7:19-25; I Corinthians 15:31; Hebrews 12:2; Galatians 2:20 NASB)
