DYING 2 SELF
When you are content with any food,any offering, any climate,any society,and any raiment, and any interruption by the will of God, THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
When you are forgotten or neglected,or purposely set at naught and you don't sting and hurt with the insult of the oversight,but your heart is happy,being counted worthy to suffer for christ, THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
When your good is evil spoken of, when your wishes are crossed, your advice disregared, your opinion ridiculed, and your refuse to let your anger rise in your heart, or even defend yourself, but take it all in patient,loving silents,THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
When you lovingly and patiently bear any disorder and irregularity,or any annoyance,whan you stand face toface with waste,folly,extravagance, spiritual insensibility, and endure it as Jesus endured,THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
When you never care to refer to yourself in conversation, or to record your own good works or itch after commendation, when you can truly love to be unknown, THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
When you can see your brother prosper and have his needs met and can honestly rejoice with him in the spirit and feel no envy, nor question God, while your own needs are far greater and deserate circumstances,THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
When you can recieve correction and reproof from one of less
stature than youself and humbly submit inwardly as well as
outwardly, finding no rebellion or resentment rising up within your heart,THAT IS DYING 2 SELF.
ARE YOU DEAD YET?????
