Bible Challenge (Matthew 16:24-26)
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Matthew 16:24-26
In order to truly follow Christ, there must be a denying of self. I have natural human tendencies and desires that God desires for me to set loose. I must empty my hands of MY desires in order to take up the cross of GOD’S desires and plan for me.
