FOLLOW JESUS WHO LEADS US TO GOD! Jesus states, “IF ANY WANT TO BECOME MY FOLLOWERS, LET THEM DENY THEMSELVES … DAILY” [Lk 9:23 NRS]{Mt 16:24}{Mk 8:34}. When Jesus encourages us to deny ourselves daily, the mention of “TAKE UP THEIR CROSS” [Lk 9:23 NRS] implies to follow Jesus even if it means losing our earthly life. God speaks complimentary of people who “DID NOT LOVE THEIR LIVES SO MUCH AS TO SHRINK FROM DEATH” [Rev 12:11 NI]. Not everybody is willing to put aside their personal desires and wants to that extent. Jesus our role model, who promises us eternal life, was willing to deny Himself to that level when He told God “NOT WHAT I WANT, BUT WHAT YOU WANT” [Mk 14:36 GN].  Deny concern for our earthly life and just follow Jesus. Do you deny yourself?  Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
