Mark 1:7 – More Of You Lord And Less Of Me

Mark 1: 7 – And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.

MORE OF YOU LORD AND LESS OF ME! IS THIS YOUR CRY ON THIS MORNING TO THE LORD?

Earnest Pugh sings this song:I need your Glory!
I want your Glory. Less of me and more of you is what I need.
Show me your Glory. Show me your Power. Less of me and more of you is what I need.

So many times I strayed away, rejecting your love and your warm embrace. I realized that I need you more and more each day.

In order for God to show us His Glory, it has to be less of us and more of Him. Unless a seed fall to the ground and die, it will remain a seed and bare no fruit. Unless we die to ourselves, we will not be able to bare the fruit of the Spirit!

This is my cry! I want more of God and less of me! I can not live nor serve the way I should without His divine leadership and guidance. I am lost without You Lord! I need your Holy Spirit to lead, guide and direct me into all truth and righteousness. I need You on today and every day of my life Lord! MORE OF YOU LORD AND LESS OF DEBRA! I want to be everything that you created me to be and I know it requires me to die to who I think I am and let You show me who I am in and through You. Oh Lord, LESS OF ME AND MORE OF YOU!

Your Word, Oh Lord declares in this text to me and the world this morning, that I, along with them, are not even worthy to untie the straps of your sandals. Father give us the passionate desire to have more of You Lord and less of us!

Psalm 87:4- What is man that you would even consider Him Lord? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field. Yet Father, in all this that you have graciously done for us,the positions that you have placed us in the earth and all that you have given us in this life, we still need MORE OF YOU LORD AND LESS OF US!!!

It is NOT about us, it is about doing for others and in turn we do for Christ who told us, in Matthew 25:40- “Whatever you have done for this least brother of mine, you have done for me.” Let’s be honest for a moment. To some degree, we are all selfish to the core. MY WAY, MY, MY, MY!!!! ME,ME,ME!!

God will give His Glory to NO ONE!

Less of me and more of God requires me to die to my flesh daily. Less of me and more of God requires me to “TRUST YOU GOD”! less of me and more of God is the only way that my enemy is able to be defeated, Less of me and more of God is the only way to live a life of victory in Christ Jesus, Less of me and more of God is the only way to SALVATION AND ETERNITY WITH CHRIST!

Are you having trouble dying to your flesh? Dying to the thought or idea that life is about you and not God? Jesus give us a little help on what to do if this is our attitude on this morning.

“Ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3

LESS OF ME AND MORE OF YOU LORD IS MY PRAYER ON TODAY AND EVERYDAY! HELP ME TO BE REMINDED THAT I AM NOT EVEN WORTHY TO UNTIE THE STRING ON YOUR SHOES! KEEP US HUMBLE LORD BEFORE YOU! KEEP US IN REMEMBERANCE THAT IT IS YOU WHO HAVE MADE US AND NOT WE OURSELVES.

MORE OF YOU AND LESS OF ME LORD!!!

About Minister Aiken

I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I received my call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 16, 2003 and I was licensed as a Minister on Sunday, December 30, 2007. I am an Associate Minister, Sunday School Teacher for Adult # 1 Class, Instructor for New Members Class, Youth Church Teacher, Senior Missionary, and Blogger. I have worked in the medical field for 31 years. I am the wife of one husband whom I have been married to for the last 27 years. Out of this union came one son. I have always been an advocate of God's Word even prior to salvation. Now that I am saved, I have taken it to another level with the help of the Holy Spirit. I am what others call "Radicle for Christ!" Yes, I LOVE JESUS! I started sending out daily devotional messages over 12 years ago via email. In March of 2011 the Lord told me that it was time for the daily devotionals to be taken to the world wide web. I did not understand how nor belive that God could use me for such a task as this, but thanks be to God who knows all things. I obeyed God and the rest was history. This ministry has truly been a blessing to the heart and soul of many that are saved and unsaved. Many lives have been changed, energized, transformed, restored, refreshed, and clansed by the Power of the Holy Spirit through God's spoken words from His Bible. Romans 10:14-15 - How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15-And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Truly, this Ministry is a blessing from God to mankind everywhere. No great works has any man done that he or she should boast! "TELL THE LORD THANK YOU" is indeed the Lord's will for you and I. God truly is an "AWESOME WONDER!" I love Him!! He is my Lord and Savior!!! Romans 8:31- If God be for you, who could be against you? It was Christ who died for us. 1 Thessalonian 5;18-Give thanks in all things for this is the Lord will concerning you and I in Christ Jesus. Matthew 6:33-But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.

    thank you.
    The following night the Lord stood by him and said, “Take courage.” Acts 23:14

    So how do I step into the sweet spot, where I release the me and the voices in my head, and hear only His voice and step into only His strength? As I have mulled over this question particularly in the past few days, I think part of it is, “Take control of every thought so you can pray.” When the conversations start playing out in my mind, around and around, always me against Them, grab those those, bind them up, and toss them out.

    Step into the quiet stillness of His rest.

    Thank you for sharing…its just what I needed this morning…I’m having such an overwhelming feeling in my Spirit where I just want to be in His presence but so hard to do while at work. Kari Jobe has a song that truly explains it all:

    The more I seek you,
    The more I find you
    The more I find you, the more I love you

    I wanna sit at your feet
    Drink from the cup in your hand.
    Lay back against you and breath, feel your heart beat
    This love is so deep, it’s more than I can stand.
    I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming.

    Be blessed!
