Today's Verse: Matthew 16:25

Tuesday, June 27, 2006

[Jesus taught,] "...whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it."
— Matthew 16:25

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The key to life is letting go of ourselves and welcoming Jesus and his will into our lives. Please don't forget to relinquish your life to the one who gave up his own life for you. You see, he took it back up again, just so that when we lose our life to him, we can have it back forever with him.

My Prayer...

Holy God, I believe that Jesus is Lord, your Son, my Savior and King. I long for his life to be made visible in mine to your glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
