"The person that wants to save his life will lose it. And every person that gives his life for me and for the Good News will save his life forever."
— Mark 8:35 NLT
Illustration of Mark 8:35 NLT — "The person that wants to save his life will lose it. And every person that gives his life for me and for the Good News will save his life forever."

Key Thought

So often what we most passionately pursue is what we cannot achieve, purchase, or find. Life is found in Jesus. Life is found in obeying Jesus. Life is found in living for Jesus. Anything else is lost in death.

Today's Prayer

O Father, help me refine my focus so that I find my life built and centered in your Son as my Lord. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
