THEME: DAILY DEATH OF MAN PART 1
BIBLE TEXT: 1 Corinthians 15 vs 31-34
MEMORY VERSE: Roman 6 vs 5
Death can be defined as the ceasation to life and all associated processes. The daily death in this context is the continuous and speedy death of Man to somethings. A man can die to two things, either to the things of the World or to the Things to the spirit. One death is unto Glorification of God and one of the death is for Condemnation.
We are to highlight and focus in area of daily death to the things of the World for the Glorification of God . Daily death is day by day system of forsaking a nature that Man carries; an analogy to pass from a level of letting something down. A dying Man is a Man that is breaking daily to the system of this World. Daily Death of Man is a protocol of Man to be free with a strange nature they carry. Daily death is a spiritual race to kill the response of the flesh completely and all that concerns self.
This a continuous denial to assets of the World and all that concerns it. From onset,
Our fallen human nature is completely and utterlyselfish. We are born wanting all our needs met (right now!) and if we are not careful, we will continue living like self-centered, immature children. But as Christians, there is a higher call to put off our old nature and put on the “new man” (Ephesians 4:22-24, Colossians 3:9-11). The apostle Paul’s exhortation to the believers in Corinth gives us a glimpse of his aim in life:
1 Corinthians 15 vs 31 -34
“ I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. If in the manner of Men,i have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me ? ” . If the dead do not rise. " Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die. Do not be deceived. Evil company corrupts good habits. Awake to righteousness and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame ".
A rugged Apostle Paul was making an affirmation that he die daily . He was not telling the church of the Corithns that they should not be deceived . A daily death is a momentumal death, a death that require number of time to complete it. Death itsfel happens to man daily, as man live daily he dies daily simultaneously. As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual realm. The Daily death is a tool to get rid of so many things that arise and happens to man daily. That ought to die daily; a mystery to have the life of God daily.
In actualizing this, as Man still remain and confine himself to this World; he requires a system to separate himself from the world daily.
In the analogy of daily death. The flesh opens up to more scenes of the world and the world even get a new update to capture the mind of Man. The daily death is a fighting tool to disregard this unnecessary breakout. The question is to whom are to die to?, and by what means can we die daily.
Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
Crucification with Christ as shown the green light to the daily death of Man. A systematic process to get out completely from the acts of this world. When Christ is in you, you're already dying to the selfish nature, your worldy nature . Show me a man that die daily and I show you a man that the World cannot move or cage.
This daily death is a compulsory entity to the body of Christ to fully serial themselves from the nature of sin and the World.
In the Spiritual realm, this daily death of Man is real. In support, this daily death warrant a victory to man. Visualizing this reality is key for those that really want to come out strong and leave it all to the World. In life some years back there are things I do; mere looking at it now, there are certain things I don't do again even if the same event happens. It is a continuous procese thatt Man ought not to stop doing. The more you live, the more you die.
Roman 6 vs 7-8 " For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him ".
The death is a key to unlock every sinful nature man carry. Daily devil would want to come with a bargain to see if you're dead with Christ or not. The only system to die daily is when you''ve died with Christ. Temptations would come, trials would come but those exhibit the continuous death would overcome this testing period. For it is impossible for a man to rise and overcome without dying to something. It is a sacrifice of the flesh for the interference of Christ in You.
The beauty of this daily death is that, it start from Christ and ends in You. You continue to live the life and Christ and hence makes you to die daily; this is a compendium of building men. You must die to something to be alive to another. The world has a provide a system that makes man to fall and rise daily; but a dying man can resist adeath To resist the system of this World; man has to die daily to live eternally with God. The Death is this context is forsaking and not the natural death. A necessity that need to be out into place for the effect ascending of Man before God.
Daily Death is a stepwise process of coming out of darkness into light. This is not ordinary death, but death to some things of this world. The limelight of this wordly output that we see in man come gradually into manifestation of Man and so Man has to get rid of them by dying daily to this agents. Satan found the media of this world to trap men and without a continous death to them; it becomes impossible to be free from them.

Christ came to the world and he overcame death; he has come to hand over the keys of death to us. Christ died to hand over death and grave power. His death started from the cross to the day he rose up from the death. Our Lord is a Compendium of who has taught us on how to die daily. Once you have Christ living in you, then you have gained victory over death and hence you die daily to the things of the world.
Roman 6 vs 3 " Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus, were baptized into His death?." The point of death has started when the life Christ has come to the Epic center of your life. Once you have baptized into Christ Jesus, then we were baptized into death. It is in the death of Christ we can find means to die to many other things of the World. Christ came to collect keys and one of the way to gain this is to die and obtain keys to overcome death. You can die daily to the things of this world once you centered Christ in you as the point source of the life you live. It is in His life you can commence your daily life. .
This system of dying daily is a way to not be slave to several things again. A dead man has no response to the things of this world; he is dead to all that concerns that world and so has been free from the tortue of Sin. Man suffers this victory not until the very life of Christ our Lord came himself to show us the path way to overcome death and die daily to the things of the World. Though we have been crucified with Christ and by Him we can find means to die to all other things in this world. But there is a need to die daily to overcome the episode of torments the World can come with. Show me a man that has been dead to the things of the World by Christ and I show you a man that remain undefeated.
It is impossible to die daily without life of Christ in You.Christ in you the hope of Glory , a hope of eternal life. Your daily death is equivalent to your daily life. Christ is the number system that makes a man die to the desires of this world. The man has no siganls to Worldy luggage and treasures. He doesn't react to the flashy calls and display of the world.
A dying Man is a Serious Kingdom minded person, you don't find them anywhere. You find them in a sacred closure maintaining the system of death. For Man ought to die daily. The death of a Man to things of the World qualifies him for living.
Mattew 24 vs 13 "But he who endures to the end shall be saved". A man that can endure the period of the dying to the things of the death have course to live daily. Endurance with the help of Christ in you makes you to die daily to the things of this world. The life of Christ inside you is a great too die daily to this worldy deposit.
The life of Christ in You is a system of dying. When you have accessed the life of Christ, the body and flesh in you will begin to die. From the very first day you have accepted Christ as your lord and personal savior; the life has started working in you and it is in this life we can find means to die to the things of the World. The life of Christ in You is a weapon of dying daily; a very strong weapon to overcome the power of the world and all that concerns it.

Act 3 vs 15 " and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from dead ,of which e are witnesses ". The Prince of life was killed and as a result overcame the power of death. Jesus went through the deepest form of death by laying all just to overcome the sinful nature of Man and reconcilee Man back to God. If Christ can go this deep and overcome death; then you have all it takes to die daily to the systems of the world. The route out now is how well you've done just to live in the reality of the life. Show me a man that is so full of life of Christ and I show you a man that has started dying daily. For to live daily in Him; you have Die daily to the things of the world and all that concerns it. If the World can update daily on how track Man; you ought to die daily to the system by the life you carry inside you.
Show me a Man that is currently dying to the flesh and I show you a Man that has inhabited the life of Christ. The life of the living logo itself.
At every point of dying for the man he doesn't see himself again ; he doesn't have a self respond again but the life of Christ inside keep him going and dying to the flesh. The life of Christ inside you is a presence of God inside you. It is necessary we see this reality of this life which He can come in substitution for , to give us His life and hand over our own to him. Your continuous death has started when you're told to give your life to Christ so that He can give you His own. Learn this principle of dying; For it is impossible to die daily without the life of Christ
2. MIND OF CHRIST :
To die daily you have to carry the life of Christ. A system of knowing what exactly is in Christ that made him overcome death. It is in the mind that your contionus death to the things of the world is guaranteed. Carrying a mind of Christ is like carrying the whole armor of God. You need a rocky mind when you're dying daily; a mind that says am not quoting until I get myself out of this world. One thing is to have the life of Christ; one thing is to have the Mind of Christ.
The Mind of Christ is a strong back up when a man is dying daily; a validity that you can never relent and negotiate for less.
Bible says Philippians 2 vs 5 "Let this mind be in You, as it was in Christ Jesus". A daily dying man needs a strong mind and not the mind of this World. An ever persistent and consistent heart that keep going. For it is impossible to die daily without this mind also. Christ came to show us this mind and give us the likeness. At every epic point of dying; the mind would be tested to see if there is still unction to continue dying. Paul the Apostle had this mind of Christ and that's one of the thing that made him die daily. The strength to die daily is seen in the inner mind of a Man. A splitting pattern from the ways of the world to the way if God.
The mind is battle field to die to the things of the world. A system of living and dying; a compulsory fight you have to give your mind so far one want to conquer the action of the flesh . The Mind of Christ you showcase qualify one for the continuous death to the things of the flesh. The reason be that; action are first conceived in the mind whether to do it or not. The mind of Christ is a very complete mind that can make a man move mountains because it is mind that is so full of God. The Battle of the World and the flesh is not yours completely, it start from the mind of Christ you have nortured and conceived right inside you.
Romans 6:11-14 " Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of yourbody to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from thedead, and your members as instruments ofrighteousness to God ".
Consideration that one has been dead to see is when you see yourself dying to sin daily. Man need need to first see himself as a dead person to sin,affairs of the flesh before he can step into the reality of dying daily. The Flesh at all cost want to reign over soul at all time; really want to the whole signal. Flesh is outer but the soul is inner; you can only use what that's inner to control what that is outer. Daily death start from within before it comes into full manifestation in the outer realm. The mind of Christ inside you has capability to control the action of the flesh and sin; it is when you have fully this mind to start full work that it kick start its suppressing power.
The Mind of Christ keeps you and make you to continue die to the things of the world and make you Alive to the world. This is a reality that happens and make the World itself marvel when you show no response to desires of the world again. Carry this Mind and see maybe you won't die daily to so many things. The strong engine that keeps man going on this track of death is the mind you have installed inside you. Visualize the Mind inside you and see maybe its the real mind you ought to carry for this race. This mind of Christ is ever ready to carry you through out the period of your daily death; a daily exercise that fortify you completely.
Romans 12 vs 2 " And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God ". This is telling us that we shouldn't follow the pattern of this world in dying daily. There is a pattern of death of condemnation that this world can give us which prove wrong. The really daily death of Man to the things of the world can bee seen when we're transformed by the renewing of our minds.
This a real prove of our daily death. The bible used a continuous tense of renewing and not renewed of mind.
The mind need a continuous floush and renewing to keep us going on the course of a daily death. A continuous renewing mind is a continuous dying mind to the things of the world. The daily requires a day to day updated mind that can withstand the trigger of the world. This is one of the reason why that mind of Christ is key requirement for a dying Mind. It is an everlasting mind that never fail. It is a radar that tap directly from God to know what situations need. Obtain the Mind of Christ and face your death to the flesh and the things of the World. A mighty tool when the World see it in you while coming ; they tend to pave way for you and move away from you.
Devil is aware and control the mind of Man but can never control the mind of Christ you carry. A man that is ready to die to the things of the world is the one that is responsible to behold the power of this Mind. The Mind of Christ is so powerful that devil itself cannot predict or have idea of. Your continuous daily death need to be controlled with the efficiency of the Mind of Christ that you have allowed to settle inside you deeply. Daily death is a breaking process and need a strong mind for the full actualization of the process .
Colossians 3 vs 2-3 "Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God ".
Setting our Mind on things above is a prove that we are already on the journey of daily death. The placing of the mind above to receive the mind of Christ is a process of dying and its then the hidden life we have Christ come into reality. There must be a super saturation of this kind of Christ in Us to converge us to die daily. The mind you carry control your major system of the body; and for the body to die the your canal mind must first die by collecting the mind of Christ. Die daily to the things of the World , stay away from the negotiations and the ruggedity to die daily register your full access to the spirit of God inside you.
3. WORD OF GOD :
The word of God is a sharp tool of God; a very sensitive tool for daily death of a Man. The more you have more emphasis to this word; the more you break inside you and die to the flesh . The Word of God cause your daily death from within; a compendium of truth that penetrate inside a a man and then cause the man to have a casual effect.
Hebrew 4 vs 12 "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even todividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart" .
The word of God has a living system to those that want to die. The living system is the fuel that keeps you going on your daily death to the World.
The word of God is a daily bread for you to die in this realm, the more you fuel the word in your soul, the more the power to die. A unique activesness to sensitize your when you're dying resides in this word if God . When a Man is dying daily the Word of God you carry as a tool penetrate inside your marrow and joints to bring out those things the world has deposited inside you. The word of God perform an operation inside you on your journey to die daily that makes you look exactly like Christ.
The System of Dying daily to the flesh requires this great episodes of truth. Men at a point of dying daily encounter a void where only the word of God can fill. This junction can not solved by human ability; your knowledge can fail you at this point; your experience can fail at this point of death, your qualifications can fail you at the junction of death. A solemn bridge you have to cross to the new life you desire. Every dying man encounter this void at some phase in their life. Jesus was in the Wilderness and he was dying for a period of forthy days and forthy night and forty days. He was dying daily and at a point a void came which food cannot fill, a void came that neither the desire of this World can fill. Jesus replied and told Satan in Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that can come from God.
Luke 4 vs 3-4 " And the devil said to Him, If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread, But Jesus answered him, saying '' It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God ".
A dying Man would come to a point in there life when they want to be filled with something. The filling content is not bread, is not water is neither the nice food of this word. The content that's is needed to fill a dying Man is the Word of God. Your thirst and hunger at your dying state requires the Word of God. If the Word of God cannot fill your empitiness nothing can fill you. The Word comprises of so many components and all what a dying man need is inside it. The word of God can do exactly what God can do in the life of a dying Man. The living logos of God. Show me dead Man today and I show what has filled his void when the Man is dying.
The daily Death has a changing system he does to Man; and this come into actualization by the word of God that has filled the void in the person. If the Word of God cannot change you, nothing can change you even after your death. The Word of God should change you during the daily death and not after. It is an ingredient that mind and screw you up in the spiritual realm.
Deut 8 vs 3 " He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.The food that keeps you going on your course to daily death is the amount of the word you have encountered. A dying Man must encounter series of the Word of God. There is a word of God that bind you together, there is a word you encounter when you're dying that speaks for you, there is a part of the word a dying man encounter that feed him.
The continuous death requires a man that daily have the word.
There is a word of the World that keep coming to your face regularly; they spit on you and say series of word of the World. A dying Man requires the Word of God, the Word of Light to overcome the series of the World. So many life's have been endangered with the language of the world they grow with. To die daily to the flesh and this doctrine , you must live daily with this word of God. Its a requirement for every dying man to realize this mystery. The more you inject the word into your system; the more you die to the things of the World. Its a sharpener of so many blunt lifes. Living in the reality of the world makes you feel dead to the things of the world; for a man need to be atoned to the power of the word to be able to overcome the power of the world. You're not just dying for self dying; you're dying to the system of the world and all that concerns it when you realize how much of it word you have conceived. This is a great tool for a dying Man, you need it at every edge of the dying stage.
A daily dying Man at a stage in his like look exactly like the structure of the Word. People tend to read the lyrics of the word of God in him when all that concerns the World has been dead in Him. Our Lord Jesus Christ look exactly like this Word and many read through to see the efforgence of a dying Man. Jesus Chirst death has started before he was nailed; he died daily until he reached the cross and he resurrected . He died to the System of the World, overcame death and also came to show us the reality. We don't need to go the the cross like He continuously copyright of the word he carries and reside in that System.
Mattew 16 vs 24-25 "Then Jesus said to His disciples, " If anyone desires to come after Me, let him drnu himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it". Daily death is a system to deny yourself of so many things continuously .
Daily Death requires taking picking up His word daily to learn about Him. There is no a pausing moment to stop knowing Him. Find the Tool of the Word as a Master tool to die daily and abstain yourself from the language of the World. Only those that can die to many things in this realm can be saved completely. You get the lettering of the daily death on the efficiency of the World you have installed inside you.
4. Time of Breaking:
To die daily is great gain, infact it comes with the best benefit but it requires time. A dying Man is a breaking Man to the systems of this World but time factor is require to dwell in this realm. A sytematic process of dying correlate with the time it takes to break. It is a cogent tool for any dying Man. It shows your life span of death. A jurisdiction that of your lengthe in the process of the death. Time of breaking means the allocated period you have set aside for the completion of the death. A dying Man requires this Time, a dying Man need this period of duration .
Ephesians 5:15-17 So, then, be careful how you live. Do not be unwise but wise, making the best use of your time because the times are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
Time is a building factor, is a dying factor to the flesh. A man that die daily is building His spiritual life daily and time is a requirement in dying to it. The measurement of death Man can be adjourned based on the time he has spent dying. The bible says, be careful how you live and not be unwise. In this World where every activities is based on time; a dying Man then would be tested on the time he can spend on his dying process. That we can access the wisdom of a dying Man based on the jurisdiction on the time he sacrifice. An attach on the life of a dying Man is a real attach. If devil can attach the time of dying Man,he has already attached his spiritual life.
A dying Man can't undergo this process without time. The book of Ephesians say making best use of time because the times are evil. This is a proof that to take up time within your reach to die daily to the things of this World.
Rick Said something about time as a confined entity " Time is your most precious gift, because you only have a set amount of it." - Rick Warren. There is a breaking pattern that Time gives, a system of continuous flow in the realm of God. This is the period of complete transformation of Who God want the person to be . An unbroken Man is a Man that has not really passed through the real entity of time as a tool for dying.
A breaking time for dying time is a period the Man become invisible to the system of the World. Our Lord Jesus didn't just went into the Wilderness; he went with time ( 40 days and 40night ), he became invisible to Man but it was a dying time for him to Overcome the devil and the tricks.
Corinthians 4:18 So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal". In the Time of breaking for a dying Man, there are used time for dying and unused time for dying. Devil would not want to plant into the used time of a dying Man; devil is after planting into the unused time of a dying Man. As a Christian that is dying to the World , be vigilant and be sober because your unused time under a battle of living or dying. The bible says what is seen is temporary, what is unseen is eternal. A dying Man to the World is already planning to live in eternity. Guard your unused time with all diligence because that's where your road to eternity lies majorly. Show me a Dying Man that is breaking to time and I show you a Man devil find it difficult to oppress. A man that can enter there unused time like a dead Man to the flesh lives in eternity.
For a dying Man to the things of the flesh, the time of breaking can be directional or a speedy . More profitable if the Man follow the path of time that is directional before the Speedh road. Notably in this realm is not how far you have died but how directed is your death. The daily death should be centered toward living with Christ in Eternity and the Cross should be your radar in this race. Die daily with direction of time and not with the speed. Try and Understand this key and you would rise as at when due. The life of a daily Man is directional to the amount of time he has fueled in His journey with respect to time
Ecclesiastes 3:11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end." To master in this state of daily death; time is required.
There is a time that a man need to bend into the dimension of a dead man. A dead man to the world has no response to the signal of the world. It takes time mastering to fully dwell in this system. The bible made us to understand that God has planted eternity in the human heart but man can't still see the whole scope of God's work. The same way that path into the destination of a dead man also pave way for eternity. For a daily dying man has to understand the ethics and lyrics of time.
In this dispensation, time is a currency of dying. The more time you have, the more you die daily to the flesh. You don't say have died to the world yesterday and its not necessary to put on that tool again today.
You have a daily business to die to the system of this world within the jurisdiction of time you have. Your continuous assessment is estimated based on the amount of time you put in during the period of your daily dying. A breaking Man requires timing, he requires daily routine and rehearsal of time. For it is impossible to die daily to the world if you don't control the time within you.
Psalm 31 vs 15 "My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue ". The time of a Dying Man resides in hand of God. Once you're dying to the system of the World automatically your time resides in the hands of God. This is a mystery that help you to redeem your time because the bible also says the times are full of evil. A dying man need a time of breaking and this time need to be secured ultimately in the hands of the Hand. Show me Man that has handed over his time to God and I show you a Man that is ready to die to the things of the World.
A dying Man to the things of the World would by pass the time of the World and live in the time of God.
Psalm 31 vs 12 " I am forgotten like a dead man,out of mind; I am like a broken vessel ". The apex of the time duration is when a dying Man is almost forgotten. It is during this period that God come to the aid of the broken vessel. Die to the world today so that you won't beg for this when there is not time for this again. A time of breaking is a great tool for dying that you shouldn't exchange with devil.
A. Man must have encountered Jesus Christ before he can die daily . Devil want all Men to feel rejected most of the time. Any Man that is alive to the system of this World has already rejected himself from the Canopy of God. Daily death is an approach to do away with the things of the World, all that concerns that World and feel accepted to fill a purpose in the plan of God. Daily death to the World would make the World to reject you because you're no longer their and this automatically create an atmosphere of acceptable in the room of God. A Dying Man to the system of the World shouldn't feel ashamed, neither feel irrelevant. It is a real prove that the World are no longer seeing you as their own again. Imagine a Man that before love the affairs of the World like dancing in the public to some Worldy songs; A time can come all these attributes is not seen in Him again. Recording on this, he must have died to the system of the World though rejection by His colleagues can come but automatically he would accepted in the Kingdom of God.
John 17 vs 14 -15 " I have given them your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the World. I don't pray that you should take them out of the World but that You should keep them from the evil one".
Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that he need to pray for His disciples now thats not going to be with them for a while. He knew how devlish the World may be to confront this ones. He prayed for them that as they continue to love for the gospel by dying and facing persecution they won't be moved. A dead Man to the things of the World can't be moved by the things of the World because he has no response to the World again. It was later after Jesus left that they were arrested and imprisoned. There continuous and persistent to preach the Word and defend Gods grace made them to be relevant and not loose their unction.
If a Man do not die physically to things of the World with the help of the Holysprit he cannot Manifest in the Spiritual. Christ came to die for Our Sins and for redemption; to continue to tap into this reality we need to die ultimately to the flesh for the spirit to Manifest. The bible says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. You need your body to carry the work on this planet; is only a dead man to the flesh that can control the flesh and let the spirit rule. This is a basement and self-fight for every Man knocking the door of eternity.
A popular Writer and a Man of God said something in one of His books titled Living With Eternity. He said and I quote " You must become dead to the World System because only those who are dead can be raised ". Sir Gbile Akanni made this analogy that only those can be raised to Gods System are those that are dead to the System of the World. Our Worldly doesn't fit the new life we carry, the flesh on us can't do this work of God . It is then compulsory for every man to sucuumb and undergo this self death to the flesh.
Act 2 vs 24 " But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself so that I may finish my race with Joy and the Ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God'. A time would come in the lifeline of a dead that all the things of this World won't move Him nor count His life dear to Him. A point of total death is the process of daily death. The path way of daily death is rough and only those that wait till the end shall be saved totally. Though our Sin has been paid for by the death of our Lord Jesus Christ because death is a payment for freedom of things. Man still have to logger and die daily to the flesh to be able to overcome the actions of the flesh completely by His grace.
The destination of a dying Man is Eternity, he knows where is heading to and so therefore he has to die daily to reach this destination. The environment of the World would not want to suit your plan,you have to create an atmosphere of living by dying daily to the things of the flesh. Show me your destination today and I Show you the how far you have gone to reach there. A daily race requires a daily preparation, for nobody knows when or where eternity is. My brother, my Sister reading this you see the reason you get stalked everyday though you're a fervent Christian or Worker as the case maybe. Can I ask you this question?. Do you die daily by Paying this price of daily death. Are you Ready to say no to Worldly things that come your way daily. The bible says the times are full of evil, are you ready to redeem the time by dying daily to the fle of this World. I urge you to go to Christ Today if you haven't encountered Him. He was the first overcomer of death and in Him life resides now. Die Daily for the Precious Prize that await you in Heaven, a miss can make you miss heaven. Don't settle for less by the Comprise this World may offer. God Bless you!!!
