This Is Discipleship [Matthew 16:24-28]
  • Topic: CHRISTIAN LIVING, DEATH AND DYING, DISCIPLESHIP, EVIDENCE OF THE FAITH, FAITH

Overview

Many church-goers think that Christianity is a formula for success and fulfilment in this life. But Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. " He says that following Him is not about self-fulfilment, but self-denial. It is not getting your best life now, but about losing your best life now! Following Jesus is not self-centred, but it is cross-centred. So, if you want to follow Jesus, you must be willing to die to yourself on a daily basis. But there is great value in doing so, for Jesus also said, "For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. " It is promises like this that inspired Jim Elliot and countless others to give their lives for the cause of Christ, believing "He is no fool to give what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose. " Jesus promised He "is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. " You only live once (YOLO)! Make it count. Lay down your life for Jesus, and find eternal life indeed! Find out more about authentic discipleship to Jesus in this sermon!
