MESSAGE:

While growing up as a young Christian, I had studied different
materials from several Bible scholars who emphasized the
concept of “dying to self” as the true essence of the Christian life.

Rhapsody of Realities 18 April 2020 Daily Devotional

They
thought that to do anything that pleases God, or to develop a liking for the
things of God, you must go through this process of “dying to self.”

However, as I studied the Scriptures, I came across Paul’s inspired
writing in Colossians 3 that we are dead and our lives are hid with Christ
in God. That changed everything for me; there was no need to “die to
self”; we were already dead.

Therefore, we didn’t have to “die” again to
be able to serve God and set our minds or affections on spiritual things.
We can do this naturally, as new creations of righteousness, by directing
our desires.

Some people find it a drag to engage in spiritual activities, but not
you. You love to pray; you love to go to Church, study and meditate on the Word, because your affection is set on Him. You’re dead to the world
and the world is dead to you (Galatians 6:14). This is your new life in
Christ. Live it now.

Notice that Colossians 3:3 doesn’t say you should try to die to the
world or to self; rather, it says, “For ye are dead….”

This means you’re a
brand-new person—a new species of being that never existed before (2
Corinthians 5:17)—dead with Christ to the rudiments of the world
(Colossians 2:20).

You’re dead to sin and its effects. So, it’ll be wrong to take days off,
fasting “to die to the flesh,” or spending long hours in prayers, griping
about how you seek to die to self in order to please God.

What you
should do is to set your affection on Him; on His heavenly Kingdom. Love
Him with all your heart and let the things of the Spirit be more important
to you than anything in the world.
