Surrender Your Rights

Jesus didn’t insist on His rights; He took our wrongs. “Crucified with Christ,” our attitude will be like Paul’s (Galatians 2:20). Leonard Ravenhill explains: “[Paul] had no ambitions [for himself]—and so had nothing to be jealous about. He had no reputation—and so had nothing to fight about. He had no possessions—and therefore had nothing to worry about. He had no rights—so therefore he could not suffer wrong. He was already broken—so no one could break him. He was dead—so none could kill him. He was less than the least—so who could humble him? He had suffered the loss of all things—so none could defraud him.” Advocate for the rights of others, but surrender your rights when YOU are right.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
