Then He said to them all, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” ~ Luke 9:23 HCSB

Jesus made a sacrifice for you. Are you willing to make sacrifices for Him? Can you honestly say that you’re passionate about your faith and that you’re really following Jesus? Hopefully so. But if you’re preoccupied with other things or if you’re strictly a one day a week Christian then, it’s time to reorder your priorities.

Nothing is more important than your wholehearted commitment to your Creator and to His only begotten Son. Your faith must never be an afterthought; it must be your ultimate priority, your ultimate possession, and your ultimate passion.

You are the recipient of Christ’s love. Accept it willingly and share it passionately. Jesus deserves your extreme enthusiasm; the world deserves it; and you deserve the experience of sharing it.

i was just reading a book last night about putting "self" to death. that's the same as denying "self" and following Christ. it's not easy really. but that's the only way to go.

Great reminder for today and everyday...denying self and following Jesus Christ...not always easy but with the Holy Spirit's help we can accomplish it.
