Revelation 12:11 (ESV) 11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
When you’re selfish and self-centered, you can’t live your life unto death. You can’t die to yourself. Everything is about you.
You can’t be a Christian for you. You can’t be a Christian for your sake. You have to be a believer for his namesake. Anonymous
My goal as a believer is to not make my life work. It’s to manifest Jesus in everything I do in every circumstance. when you do that, you have died to yourself.
There is no unforgiveness in your life. There is no bitterness. There is no hatred.
When you are betrayed you don’t live betrayed
It is impossible to live betrayed if you have died to yourself. Moving forward, there will be so many changes and obstacles in my life. He never changes he is the only constant in my life.
We think it’s so hard to die to ourselves. It’s really not. You choose not to let anything, anyone, any circumstance change who you are. You don’t react.
Do not let anything in your life Define you unless it is Jesus. Anonymous
Romans 13:8 (ESV)
8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
Revelation 12.11 The Mirror Bible. Mikael and his shepherd-messengers [representing the entire host of heaven – including all the multitudes previously mentioned] conquered the Dragon because of the blood of the little Lamb and the word of their testimony! They did not believe that the agape of life discovered in Christ can be threatened or 1terminated in death! (The blood of the Lamb brought closure to every possible accusation against the human race. This is the testimony of the prophetic word announcing the Good News throughout the ages. The word achri – the end; the idea of terminating. See Extended Notes on the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ at the end of chapter 20.)
