Surrender

The first step to selflessness is to surrender your life to Jesus and become one of His disciples. Selflessness requires the stopping, quitting, halting of anything and everything that might impede our fellowship with God.

We must seek to follow the will of God and refuse to do our own will. Selflessness requires rejecting desires of the flesh and leading a holy path. We receive the greatness of God first then we are made aware of our nothingness.

Christian belief of selflessness comes from Jesus not only implying it through words but from action. Just as He sacrificed Himself, we should sacrifice our life for Him. We must renounce ungodly and worldly passions that come from our own desires. Jesus demands in our heavenly hope, for behold, our reward is great in heaven.

When we realize God’s purpose for our lives isn’t just about us, He will use us in a mighty way.
