Galatians 2 Verse 20: “And I no longer live, but Christ lives in me, The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
When we look the Book of Acts, The disciples saw themselves as expendable in the service of their Lord. Self preservation was the last thought on their minds. They were totally and unreservedly available to the work of Their Lord.
They knew with an assured knowing, the relationship they had with Their Lord.
They knew with an assured knowing, the commission that needed to be completed for Their Lord..
If self-promotion or self-preservation is you goal in life, you have yet to discover the liberating power of The Gospel and power of expend-ability And the knowledge that comes from knowing and growing in Christ Jesus, will enable us all to see that our talents, time and treasures as opportunities to give all we have back to Him.
Then we will be able to say, as Paul did, Acts 20 verse 24:
“But I count my life of no value to myself, si that I may finish my course and the ministry I receive from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the Gospel of God’s Grace”
Also we can say as Paul did in 2 Corinthians 12 Verse 9:
“His Grace is sufficient for us” It is all we need to complete the plans and purposes, Our Lord and Our Friend has for our Lives. Jeremiah 29 verse 11.
