Luke 19:1 – 10
CAN YOU DEAL WITH YOUR “SELF”
The human nature is naturally selfish. It is the most among creatures. A man naturally will want every good things to himself before others. But the life of a child of God should be different. Like the master, our Lord Jesus Christ, who laid down His precious life, every child of God should be able to put to put his ‘Self” after others. It means, according to our key verse today, that the person will have to deny himself a lot to please others and the master. This may involve letting go what others hold so tenaciously, what others call enjoyment, way of success, adorable, etc. He will go for those things that will glorify his Maker.
The man Zacchaeus in our main text today, is a wealthy man. He was a good example of who is able to deny himself of the ‘Self’ in him to be able to walk with the Master. He says, Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold; By this Zacchaeus means to get go every wealth he acquired through fraudulent means. This may means losing so much of his wealth, but that did not mean much to him anymore. He wanted to deal with his excessive greed and materialism. He realized his lost state. He did not want to lose the previous opportunity at his disposal; he could not let it pass by, even if it meant losing a chunk part of his wealth.
Salvation and a walk with God is much important than every wealth in the world put together. The one person that can limit you is ” You” your “Self” . Can you, today like brother Zacchaeus, tame your “Self”? If you are heaven bound, yourself, greedy, proud, adulterous, lustful, quarrelsome ” Self” must be dealt with and the time is now. Being to Him about them all now. He is right here
CONTROLLING THOUGHTS :
The “Self” in you must for salvation to take over.
I know it is not easy to deal with my “Self” but give me the grace, oh Lord to do it for heaven’s sake Amen
