Following Jesus requires that we deny ourselves. We only have 2 choices. We choose something other than Christ, and that is our choice. We follow our own choice. We believe successes come from making the right choices and taking the right actions. Tell yourself no. Deny yourself. Then take up your cross. Sacrifice your control over your life and join Jesus. Why did you make the choices you've made? When you do things you think Jesus wants you to, you deny yourself and follow Jesus.

Marketplace Mission Trip Day 4 – Deliver Excellent Work https://followerofone.org/marketplace-mission-trip-day-4-deliver-excellent-work-video/ https://followerofone.org/marketplace-mission-trip-day-4-deliver-excellent-work-video/#respond Sun, 08 Dec 2019 19:00:00 +0000 https://followerofone.org/?p=6138 Marketplace Mission Trip Day 4 – Deliver Excellent Work

Delivering excellent work lets our bosses and our co-workers know that they matter to us. It also shows Jesus that we recognize that it is He who we are serving by doing this. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." - Colossians 3:23-24 Take the time to show others that you care by delivering excellence in everything that you do.

Getting Even https://followerofone.org/getting-even/ https://followerofone.org/getting-even/#respond Fri, 06 Dec 2019 12:00:00 +0000 https://followerofone.org/?p=6194 Getting Even

Do you keep score? Do you keep a record and try to get even? The Bible challenges us to bless others. We don't do something nice to someone to get even. We do something nice because we trust God. We are each accountable for our actions. If someone does wrong with us, God will make that right. Can you maintain good motives and good actions toward others, even when they don't do good toward you?

Ask God to show you where you stress relationships. How can we live in peace with everyone? Is there anyone who has anything against you? Generosity, honesty, transparency, and forgiveness are generally accepted behaviors. Do you practice these generally-accepted behaviors? We can't make everyone be at peace with us. But we can do the things that bring peace. Ask and God will show you where you need to make amends. And do it!

Humility https://followerofone.org/humility/ https://followerofone.org/humility/#respond Wed, 04 Dec 2019 12:00:00 +0000 https://followerofone.org/?p=6171 Humility

Is humility a strength of yours? Do you think of yourself as different from the people you're with? In many of my jobs, I felt like I didn't fit. I believed I was in a place where I was called to serve, but not in a place I would have chosen to be. I almost felt like I was in exile. I was only there to make a living. If I had a choice, I'd rush back to the suburb and hang out with my Christian friends. But God challenges us to be one of them. I need to identify with them, more. Ask God to show you how to do this without separating yourself from Christ's body, too.

Our gifts are designed to be shared anywhere. God has given us each strengths or gifts. The gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit living in us are to be used wherever we are, not just inside the church. Our job isn't some lesser place to use our gifts, it may be the primary place our gifts bring glory to God. Your gifts are designed to make Jesus visible. Use your gifts wherever you can. Your spiritual gifts come from God but please, use them everywhere!

Do you have a sound judgment? Do you compare yourself to others? God gives each person a measure of faith. God gives us each the faith we need. He uses us each differently to accomplish his goals. The temptation to compare ourselves to others comes from our enemy. Focus on God. Work on your relationship with Jesus and focus on him, He will use you and he will use those who are not like you. Remember He uses each of us, those we agree with and those we don't.

Are you a good listener? As Mike says, "Listen and then listen, more." Listening to others helps us get to know them and helps us know how we can be of service to them. Jesus was a great listener. He would ask people great questions. By doing this, we make others feel appreciated. Today, let's be intentional about listening to those around us.
