Take up your cross
Wow, this is not normal.
I like myself
I like my life
I like my stuff
So deny? Not normal.
And this cross business?
That sounds like it could hurt. Again, not normal.
And then it gets even more not normal:
Want to save your life? Lose it.
But what will it profit you if you gain the whole world and forfeit your soul?
What will it profit me?
What will I actually get for gaining the whole world?
…if you lose your life for Jesus and for the sake of the Gospel you will save it.
(Actually, Jesus will save it through faith)
Die? Save your life?
Praise be to God!
