Wisdom of the just : Higher Life (2) by Motire Tobi Oni

*Higher life* (2)

2 Corinthians 4:10-11
*Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh*.

Yesterday one of our VIP(very important points ) was; We are born again to live the higher life and that a higher life is a life lived for a higher purpose. The word,"always bearing about the dying of the Lord Jesus or delivered unto death here" means: for us to demonstrate the higher life we must always bear in us the sacrificial attitude of Christ  like He did on the cross.
Philippians 2:6-10
*Who, (Jesus) being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth*.
Remember Jesus got to a point in the garden where he almost turned his back on the higher purpose,  HE said,  " Father, let this cup pass over me..., then quickly he said, not my will, but Yours be done". *We must always pray that too whenever we are between two choices of giving the flesh it's filled day or mortifying it's did, because our flesh is wired to have desires that are contrary to the spirit*. Galatians 5:17 "For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would". This is why we which live have to face the death of the deeds of the flesh so that the life of Christ resident in us may find practical expression on the outside.

*The Will of the Father is prevailing in my body every day in every way at everyplace, in Jesus name*.
