Commandeer The Vehicle (Vessel)!

Stop thinking that you have complete control over your life. Yes, we all have free ‘WILL’ but it’s God’s ‘WILL’ that prevails (Proverbs 19:21)! The Message Bible paraphrase of Matthew 16:24 hit the nail on the head: “Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?” Similar to Paul’s assertion in Romans 8:38-39, I too am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing is worth the measure of my soul in Christ Jesus. I have said it before and I will say it again; “I don’t want Jesus to take the wheel, rather, I desire that he commandeers the entire vehicle (vessel)!”
