John 10:18

No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.
So I had a revelation today when this verse was explained to me.

I understood carrying my own cross and following Jesus but I never ever did it willingly.

How much of my life has been an unwilling sacrifice?

How much of what I do whether work or exercise or house duties or responsibilities I do unwillingly?

Basically 100%.

I'm honestly a bit unsettled from this revelation.
Proverbs 18:17 The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.

Looking for head to head debates, especially on contradictions or the Trinity. PM me your topic.

"Why is everyone so quick to reason God might be petty. Now that is creating God in our own image :)."

I feel the same way a lot of the time. I do things because that is what I'm supposed to do and I'd rather be doing something else. Don't really have any insight into it.
