Is It Fair for God to Ask Us to Lay Down Our Life?

Is it fair that God asks us to lay down our life?

God doesn’t ask us to do anything that He Himself was not willing to do. He came to earth, put on flesh and walked among us, lived a life of 100% love, lived a life 100% set apart and pure in heart, rejected the lies of the devil, refused the things of this world, kept His eyes set on the eternal prize, and LAID DOWN HIS OWN WILL, LAID DOWN HIS OWN LIFE,
FOR US.

He did this by choice. He did this for us. And He did this so that we can KNOW Him even though we are still in the flesh and still do not understand and still continue to live in a way that is not pure in heart, loving and set apart… even though we still want things of this world sometimes and fall into believing lies from the enemy… God came in the flesh, Jesus Christ walked with us and taught us of love, and all so that we can share in knowing the unfathomable love of our Father and so that we can realize that we are meant for more than what this world has to offer!

Philippians 2:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

6 Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
