“For whoever tries to save his own life will destroy it, but whoever destroys his life on My account will save it.”
Luke 9:24 CJB
In other words, don’t be living for yourself, trying to have things your own way! Also don’t be so consumed in self that you ignore the LORD! Remember, it really isn’t all about you!
“What will it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but destroys or forfeits his own life?”
Luke 9:25 CJB
If we are living for self, gaining worldly possessions and esteem, we jeopardize what we can have in the LORD!
“For if someone is ashamed of Me and of what I say, the SON of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and that of the Father and of the holy angels.”
Luke 9:26 CJB
We really need to be living for the LORD in every aspect of our lives, shining for the LORD!
Have a blessed day shining for the LORD!
