Die to Live

Dale Cresap's picture

My word teaches you to lay down your life and pick up your cross and follow me. He who seeks to save his life will lose it, but he who loses his life for my sake will find eternal life. Do you understand that you have to die to live? Have you met people who were self-absorbed, for whom nothing had meaning apart from how it affected them personally? You describe such people as being ‘all about them’ and in a sense they have failed to die to themselves enough to take on the larger perspective needed for a full and abundant life. In failing to die they fail to live. It is out of my love that I invite you to lay down your life that you may live.
