The True Price of Resurrection
Who is more likely to injure me, me or Jesus?
The self-made man has no one to blame but himself. (Anon)
Ourselves are the greatest snares to ourselves. (Richard Baxter)
Self is fashioned by the recitals we conduct in our brain.
Self is where we dwell and operate from because we believe it is true.
All fall, to a man, for that dominating spirit of self within, but where is there truth? The absence of self-restraint and the presence of self-assertion marshal the inner forces of self-trust, such that the very soul is claimed.
Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength... (Jeremiah 17:9)
A self-consumed spirit can only be rescued by the resurrected Man who once hung lifeless on a cross.
Self-emptiness prepares for spiritual fullness. (Richard Stibbes)
To all those who claim Jesus as Lord, submission of self is not an option box to tick on a life questionnaire.
The true price of resurrection is self-death.
