God, I want more of you and less of me
"But whoever lives by the truth comes to the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
"To this John replied, 'A man can receive only what is given him from heaven.'"
"He must become greater; I must become less."
"and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it."
This are a few verses that were talked about in my bible study tonight. A good reminder that we need to keep our "flesh" in check and make sure we are listening to God's calling and not our own. We may not understand the reasons for what he tells us to do right away, but he has a plan for ever one of us and it is a beautiful plan indeed :] but not always easy.
One thing we were told tonight was that Jesus was in the middle of God's will and he was sent to the cross.
I hope that these verses are a blessing to you as much as they are to me :]

Psalm62, thank you so much for posting these verses. :-)
I always remind myself that I want to be more Christ-like, more of Him and less of me and these verses are true reminders. We, as believers are always there to encourage each other aren't we, and you did just that! Thank you!
Is Jesus your co-pilot? If so, then you better switch seats!
