My Word is true, My children. I desire you to be living sacrifices. I desire you would die to your own wants and desires and live Christ-like before Me at all times. I desire you would live as though I were present with you every moment, for indeed I AM.
I desire you would place the needs of others before yourselves, that you would give sacrificially to help those who are in need, those less fortunate than yourselves. In this way, you are storing up many rewards for yourself, both on earth and in heaven where you may enjoy them forevermore.
I desire you would praise Me and My precious Son Jesus with every breath, and that your lives would be lived for our glory, and not your own. There are still some of you that, though you love Me, you desire to be glorified yourselves in the earth, to be held in high regard for your wealth, prestige and accomplishments.
Turn away from these desires, My children, for the enemy of your soul will use them to destroy you if they have any hold on you at all. If you will live lives pleasing to Me, I will cause you to be glorified in ways you cannot even imagine. If you live your lives for your own pleasure and glory, all you do will be for nought.
Choose carefully, My children, for your decisions in these times will hold greater consequence than ever before.
