In His Word Wednesday


Luke 9:23-25

9:23 Then he said to them all, “If anyone wants to become my follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 9:25 For what does it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but loses or forfeits himself?

My Mother-in-law still needs lots of prayer. They had to put her back on the sedation. She is fighting a couple of infections. She just needs lots of prayers.

  2. Love those verses although it's a lot to live up to. Denying ourselves is something that is extremely hard for our selfish flesh...Denying ourselves is something to keep in mind DAILY!!

    Still praying for Lenore and for your guys.

    thanks for linking! That is a wonderful picture. I love how they did that garden at church!

  3. We have been studying this passage and others regarding the cost of being a disciple for our Lord. Thank you for posting these verses as a mid week review for me. A phrase that stuck out to me today for the first time is the part about how we must "take up the cross DAILY". Thank you - praying for your family in these difficult days.
