A Prayer Against Selfishness By: Emily Rose Massey

SCRIPTURE: “I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily” (1 Corinthians 15:31, NASB).

Daily Prayer – January 25th, 2022  For Tuesday

Change the baby’s diaper, take the dog outside, feed everyone breakfast (including said dog), start a load of laundry, empty the dishwasher, fill the dishwasher with more dishes, fold and put away the laundry, clean counters, vacuum, sweep, mop, snack-time, school-time, nap-time, lunch-time, snack-time, dinner-time, snack-time, bed-time. Do it again tomorrow.

As a mom and wife, I am given countless opportunities to set aside my wants and give my love, time, and attention to the needs of my husband and children. Pouring yourself out like that on a daily basis can sometimes be physically and mentally exhausting, and I have to admit, I am tempted to wonder when I will have some “me time.” It is our human nature to seek to put ourselves and our needs first, but God has a better way.

The Apostle Paul shared this way in his first letter to the Corinthian Church:

“I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily” (1 Corinthians 15:31, NASB).

The Biblical principle of dying to yourself has always been true, but I didn’t always live it or even understand it. Becoming a stay-at-home mom has challenged me in more ways than I can count in the area of putting others before myself, and I am always learning and finding that it is truly is more blessed to give than to receive. Daily Prayer – January 25th, 2022

As Jesus’ disciples, we are called to follow Him. That was Paul’s mission in life – to imitate Christ. And it is what he and the rest of the apostles literally gave their lives to preach to the world through their words and actions. We may not ever get the honor to literally die for Jesus Christ because of our faith in Him, but by God’s grace, we can imitate His selflessness every day.

To be able to imitate Christ, we must look to Jesus as our example. Even though Jesus was God in the flesh, He still leaned upon God the Father for everything He said and did while He walked this earth. Jesus would rise early to pray and seek God for His will for the day.

In addition to seeking God in prayer, Jesus obediently submitted Himself to the will of the Father, even unto death. Each day, we are faced with the temptation to satisfy our flesh and go outside the boundaries of God’s perfect will. We are not perfect, but thankfully Jesus was, and because of His sacrifice on the cross. Ultimately, Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve others (Mark 10:45). He was the most selfless person to ever walk this earth.

Casting aside our selfishness and dying daily definitely isn’t easy, but it is worth it because Jesus promises us that whoever loses his life will find it and find it abundance (Matthew 10:39/ John 10:10)!

But remember, we cannot die daily in our own strength, friends. The Holy Spirit is who empowers us to choose God’s way through the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). With each passing day, by God’s grace, we mature and cultivate a life worth dying for, a life found in Christ alone!

Are you too busy or too distracted with your own life to serve others? May God empower us to die daily and choose others above ourselves.

Your Daily Prayer – January 25th, 2022

You formed me in my mother’s womb. You know my frame and how weak I am. I am prone to only think about myself; that is my nature. Yet, You have a higher way of living- a life of selflessness and servanthood. Jesus, You call me to lay down my life to follow You and walk in obedience to Your will, knowing that as I do, I become more like You.

Holy Spirit, convict my heart when I begin to think more highly of myself than I should and empower me to put others above myself. I do not have to be perfect because Jesus was perfect in my place, but I long to imitate Him all the days of my life.

I lean upon Your strength in the midst of my selfish weakness and trust that You are working in my heart to conform it to look like Christ’s.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
