BUT if you give up your life (Matthew 16:24-27)
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways,
take up your cross, and follow me.
If you try to hang unto your life, you will lose it,
if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
and what do you benefit if you gain the whole world
lose your soul?
Sometimes we look at this verse and think I can't give up my life, my job, my family and just become a preacher or missionary. God is not asking that, He is asking us to give up our selfish ways. Start today and purposefully set your mind to put others first and see what happens.
