Denying yourself means to say no to something pleasurable to have something better for you in the long run, usually having to do with doing God’s will, not our own will. A general rule to follow is if something feels good to your flesh, make sure that it is not against God’s will for your life. ~ Bill Greguska

Denying Yourself Is The Start Of Something Good!
Realize that being a disciple of Jesus Christ means denying yourself and our sinful desires.
Possibly the most challenging requirement of being a disciple of Jesus Christ is to deny yourself. We are all born with selfishness built right in us. It does not have to be taught, and resisting our natural desires is an ongoing battle. Denying self is key to being a follower of Jesus Christ. Read Romans 13:14. “Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.” Repete this scripture to yourself and let it sink in.

To What Your Flesh Wants To Do!
Read this from Romans 13:8-14 because it also speaks volumes, “Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandments there might be, can be summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does not harm its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. And do this, understanding the present time.
