Mark 1: 7 - And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
MORE OF YOU LORD AND LESS OF ME! IS THIS YOUR CRY ON THIS MORNING TO THE LORD?
Earnest Pugh sings this song:I need your Glory!
I want your Glory. Less of me and more of you is what I need.
Show me your Glory. Show me your Power. Less of me and more of you is what I need.
So many times I strayed away, rejecting your love and your warm embrace. I realized that I need you more and more each day.
In order for God to show us His Glory, it has to be less of us and more of Him. Unless a seed fall to the ground and die, it will remain a seed and bare no fruit. Unless we die to ourselves, we will not be able to bare the fruit of the Spirit!
This is my cry! I want more of God and less of me! I can not live nor serve the way I should without His divine leadership and guidance. I am lost without You Lord! I need your Holy Spirit to lead, guide and direct me into all truth and righteousness. I need You on today and every day of my life Lord! MORE OF YOU LORD AND LESS OF DEBRA! I want to be everything that you created me to be and I know it requires me to die to who I think I am and let You show me who I am in and through You. Oh Lord, LESS OF ME AND MORE OF YOU!
Your Word, Oh Lord declares in this text to me and the world this morning, that I, along with them, are not even worthy to untie the straps of your sandals. Father give us the passionate desire to have more of You Lord and less of us!
Psalm 87:4- What is man that you would even consider Him Lord? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field. Yet Father, in all this that you have graciously done for us,the positions that you have placed us in the earth and all that you have given us in this life, we still need MORE OF YOU LORD AND LESS OF US!!!
It is NOT about us, it is about doing for others and in turn we do for Christ who told us, in Matthew 25:40- “Whatever you have done for this least brother of mine, you have done for me.” Let's be honest for a moment. To some degree, we are all selfish to the core. MY WAY, MY, MY, MY!!!! ME,ME,ME!!
God will give His Glory to NO ONE!
Less of me and more of God requires me to die to my flesh daily. Less of me and more of God requires me to "TRUST YOU GOD"! less of me and more of God is the only way that my enemy is able to be defeated, Less of me and more of God is the only way to live a life of victory in Christ Jesus, Less of me and more of God is the only way to SALVATION AND ETERNITY WITH CHRIST!
Are you having trouble dying to your flesh? Dying to the thought or idea that life is about you and not God? Jesus give us a little help on what to do if this is our attitude on this morning.
“Ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3
LESS OF ME AND MORE OF YOU LORD IS MY PRAYER ON TODAY AND EVERYDAY! HELP ME TO BE REMINDED THAT I AM NOT EVEN WORTHY TO UNTIE THE STRING ON YOUR SHOES! KEEP US HUMBLE LORD BEFORE YOU! KEEP US IN REMEMBERANCE THAT IT IS YOU WHO HAVE MADE US AND NOT WE OURSELVES.
MORE OF YOU AND LESS OF ME LORD!!!
