Lose to Win
Luke 9:18-36 Now it happened that as he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, "Who do the crowds say that I am?"...
Jesus' words in Luke 9:23-27 drew my attention today, and particularly verses 24-25. "'For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?'" What a powerful message that hits dead on our worldly thinking today--I need to have more, live for the moment, look what I have and what I've accomplished...
So how are you living out Jesus' message in verses 23-27? What helps you? What hinders you? What can you do to improve in this area? Tami W.
