For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.
What does losing my life for Jesus and for the gospel look like? Have I done that to any degree? Really done that.. really lost my life?
Salvation comes by losing. Winning comes through forfeit.
Lord Jesus, remind me of whom I am and give me boldness – to never be ashamed of You or Your words in this generation and to joyfully lose my life for Your gospel is my prayer this day.
