On the go...
ALL IN Luke 9
“Jesus, Who Gave His All For Us, Wants Us To Give Our All To Him”
1. Deny Yourself
23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me….”
2. Die To Yourself
23 “And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily…”
24 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
3. Devote Yourself
23 “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
25 For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?
