Less Me, More You

Description

We all need to make changes in life. Pastor Mark Jeske shares how having more of Jesus in his heart and less of himself is the right way to live.

Dear Lord, of all the changes I know I need to make in my life, the biggest is to have more you in my heart and less me-me-me. I’m surrounded by idols, intrigued and entranced by things to chase and have and worship. But they are trash compared to the thrill of having you.

Without your help I would become my own idol. I would seek my own pleasures, pursue my own comfort, soothe my own insecurities, and try every way I could to make myself bigger. My friend St. Paul has a better way: “Whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus as my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish that I may gain Christ and be found in him” (Philippians 3:7-9).

I owe you the design and creation of my life. You gave me parents and shelter, food and friends, an education and a purpose. I live in your world, not vice versa. I owe you my lifelong thanks for the bloody rescue from Satan and hell. I have peace of mind, cleansing from sinful guilt, and the help of your Spirit who lives in me. I have been washed and fed, taught by the Word, and protected by the heavenly host. Lord, you are my all in all.
