"Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" Matthew 16:24-26
When we choose to follow Jesus we have chosen to give up our own desires, or own plans and choose to seek His will instead. This is not easy. It takes work every day to say "no" to me and "yes" to Jesus. It is something I am still very much working on. But it is worth it!!!!
Have you chosen to become a disciple of Jesus? It may not be easy but the rewards are not only now but also into eternity!
