How Does A Christian Deny Himself

Sep 06, 2016
Thomas Watson,

We must deny our will and bring it to God’s will—God helping us.
If a crooked stick is laid upon the ground, which is level, we do not try to bring the ground even with the stick, but to make the stick even with the ground. So God’s will is not to be brought to ours, but our will, being crooked, must be brought to God’s will. We pray, “Thy will be done.”
Praise God that the child of God can beseech the Lord for strength in denying himself.
As we read in Philippians 2:13, “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”
