Yep – that’s right!
And this ‘call’ will only be effective if God previously changes my heart; otherwise I wouldn’t be inclined to ANY self-denial at all. Without Jesus’ help nothing works (at least in my hopeless case 🙂 ).

And maybe…the real self-fulfilment – according to His will – consists in self-denial? Maybe, we are really ourselves when we don’t need self-fulfilment any more for we are filled with Christ, always automatically wanting what He wants due to being ‘one spirit’ with Him?
Who knows…

Love,
Susanne
