In our current narcissistic culture a lot of Scripture is hard to swallow...only those who love God more than the world will abide in it.

17 For it is better, if God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong.
(1Pet 3:17 NASBEC)

Because Jesus is our example

23 and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;
(1Pet 2:23 NASBEC)
21 For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,
(1Pet 2:21 NASBEC)

Consecration is our part, sanctification is God’s part. -Chambers

When we try to do both parts we strive towards Religious legalism that tries to shape or prove the heart by changing external actions. Since this is about self improvement or paying back that which cannot be paid back (salvation), this can only lead to pride (if successful) or despair (if failure).

If we understand that sanctification is God's part, our part is only consecration....which is the dedication of the pursuit of knowing God (deeper relationship) more and more. Like Mary at the feet of Jesus (Luke 10). God changes our hearts which changes our actions to His glory not the glory of our own will power ( which does nothing for our heart)..

35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written, ``FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED." 37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
(Rom 8:35-37 NASBEC)

When we are Lovers of God we will obey Him. When we obey Him this goes against the system of this world and will always bring "tribulation, distress, persecution...sword" toward us. If your life is not marked by these things, then maybe we love ourselves more than God and are instead seeking self preservation (comfort, security, control...etc).

.just found out it is really hard to speak in a second language when your mouth is numb from the dentist. Being able to say *where is the bathroom" becomes frustratingly difficult.

Abraham did not choose the sacrifice. Always guard against self-chosen service for God; self-sacrifice may be a disease. If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him. If the providential order of God for you is a hard time of difficulty, go through with it, but never choose the scene of your martyrdom. - Oswald Chambers

Jesus says simply "follow me". When we follow Him, He shows us what's to be sacrificed. If we choose we try and make deals with God. " I will sacrifice this if you let me keep this..." He wants to dismantle our idols to draw us in to a deeper relationship with Him.

"If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart."

16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
(Rom 8:16-17 NASBEC)

Key phrase: we suffer with Him

A horrendous traffic jam took place yesterday on a 50-lane motorway leading to Beijing as holidaymakers made their return journey near the end of week-long National Day celebration.
