Moses and Death to Self.

Let’s consider Moses, whom God sent into the wilderness. He experienced isolation and exile, raising sheep for his father-in-law on the backside of the desert. There he learned to die to himself and his ambition. When God presented Himself to Moses at Horeb, the one –time prince had lost his position, his influence, and in the natural the best years of his life. He might have been eighty years old, but he “was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.” (Num. 12:3NIV) In other worlds, Moses had died to self. In other words, he was just the man God was looking for. And from the encounter with the burning bush to his glimpse at death of the fair vistas of the promised land, the greatest revelation ever experienced by any human being came to Moses after he died to self. God isn’t looking for “ a few good men” He’s looking for a few dead men and women who understand from experience the might and mystery of the apostle Paul’s majestic words in 2 Cor 5:14-17

For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus; that if one died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again… Therefore, if anyone is in Christ… “old things have passed away; behold, all thing have become new. (Benny Hinn)

PRAYER LINE: Father Lord, teach me to die to self and be Christ like in my relationship with others. In Jesus’ name I pray.
