Lose Your Life?

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

Today's portion from Matthew was a great reminder even for me that a relationship with God is a daily thing. In today's culture we just want instant gratification; do things with a push of a button, etc...I'm surprised we can't buy things by just breathing.

This scripture is saying everyday you have to take up your cross and follow Him. And in kind of a backwards thinking, if you want your save your life, you'll lose it. I know...crazy! Get this, whoever loses their life for Him will find it! If somehow you get everything in the world yet lose your own soul...what's the point? What have you really gained?

Take this as a reminder to seek after God, everyday! It's a daily process!
