Daily Scripture and Thoughts

And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. (Mark 8:34, 35 ESV)

Dear Ones

This scripture is not uncommon to anyone of us. But truly how do we apply this to our lives. How do we deny ourselves? To many times in our lives we strive for happiness not by doing God's will in our lives but by satisfying ourselves and our flesh. Truly to call yourself a Christian- that Word as I said in the past  means Christ like. How are we being Christ like if we continue to be our self like- if our self is more important.

Have you thought about how much you truly love the Lord?
Do you love him enough to die to yourself?

Do you love him enough to lose your life for His Gospel?

To all these you can say yes- but when you are standing before others who are drinking or when you are alone and you turn on that computer to seek after your own lust or in that unmarried ungodly relationship are you dying to self?

Are you seeking to live for His Word? That is what it means to take up your cross and follow Him. You are to manifest His Word and you are and HE expects you to live by it.

Are you?

If not repent and seek Him as you should.

Solo Para La Gloria De Dios
