Today’s reading Mark 9-10
Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
Following Jesus means living His life. It is Jesus living in and through us. We do not live our lives but rather He lives His life.
Real life is Jesus. Real life is Jesus living and working in us! It means dying to ourselves and our goals and living for Him and His goals. It means denying what I might want to do with my life to find out His will for my life.
It means giving up my pleasures to please Him.
To find real life and enjoyment, give up your life and live His or rather let Him live His in and through you!
