“Then Yeshua told His talmidim If anyone wants to come after Me, let him say ‘No’ to himself, take up his execution-stake, and keep following Me.”
Matthew 16:24 CJB
Here we see Jesus really telling us to drop our own selfishness and follow Him!
“For whoever wants to save his own life will destroy it, but whoever destroys his life for my sake will find it.”
Matthew 16:25 CJB
It seems the more we live for self the more miserable we become! The more we live for Jesus the more joy we will have in life.
“What good will it do someone if he gains the whole world but forfeits his life? Or, what can a person give in exchange for his life?”
Matthew 16:26 CJB
We all need to be careful of falling into worldly traps and having earthly desires! Today, let’s follow hard after the LORD and follow in His ways!
Have a blessed day in Him.
