“Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself.” Jesus requires us to commit totally to Him. We must deny ourselves. Pride can’t get in the way. He is meant to be the center of our lives, not ourselves. That’s not easy to come to grips with. Our lives are about Christ. Thus, we are meant to live a life of sacrifice. Most people can’t spell sacrifice yet live a life of sacrifice. The world would be a better place if we rediscovered the concept of living a life of sacrifice. Lent is coming!
