You must lose your life… to save it!

9:24 Luke “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.“ (NIV)

Jesus shares with His disciples key actions which seem totally contrary to the ways that they had been taught. How can you save life and then lose it? Or, how can you lose your life, but then actually save it? He explains it in spiritual terms that only make sense when you see the love of Christ and His heart of grace and mercy for His followers. When you understand that, what you lose is small because you gain everything worth having… when you are redeemed by Him! Be there!!

We remember in prayer all those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. That is a huge number of people… around the world. Those who have or have had the virus. Those who treat those who have the virus. Those who are staying inside to avoid infecting others OR being infected. It is hard to imagine a more impactful event…ever! Yet, it will end. We will get through this, with the help of God. Stay well. Stay blessed. Pass it on to those who are still trying on their own to save their life… remind them that Jesus already did that… once and for all!
