There will not be anyone in Heaven who did NOT reject himself. How can you be born again without rejecting yourself and experiencing the Cross? Isn’t that the teaching of Jesus Christ? If you cannot reject yourself, you are not worthy of Him. If you cannot go against yourself, how can you lay your life for others?
“If ye continue IN My word, then are ye My disciples Indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32
“If ye abide IN Me, and My words abide IN you….” John 15:7
What does it mean to abide, to be found “IN” Christ? His Word, His Teaching – is Christ. What does it mean to abide IN His word? Whatever you are consumed by, whatever you are stuck IN – that is what you are IN. When you read Scriptures, do you find yourself IN them? Or is it an unreachable goal: “I want to be like that, but I’m not like that”?
