WHOEVER TRIES TO SAVE HIS LIFE WILL LOSE IT (by benaiah juma).
Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
Mat 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
The Statement given by Jesus Christ is a warning to us that those who desire to follow Him will have to forsake some things on this earth in order to be fit for the kingdom of God. If you have to follow Jesus Christ you will have to forsake a lot of things on this earth. That is why the bible tells us that “to be carnally minded is death but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”.This walk with Christ requires us to keep the commandments of God. And if we have to follow Christ we have to forsake the things which God calls them abominations and the things which will prevent us from having a healthy relationship with him.
Many of the things on this earth will lead human beings to damnation and we have to forsake them in order to be with Jesus Christ. Walking a holy walk with the lord Jesus Christ is not easy, we have to forsake a lot of things on this earth. The only place that you are supposed to derive your joy is at the feet of the lord Jesus Christ. Any place other than the lord Jesus Christ that you desire and it becomes the best part of your day or life, if you don’t watch out, it will turn out to be sin and idol in your life. Our walk with the lord Jesus Christ requires us to lose our families, friends, brothers, sisters and majority of the things that we enjoy but in the long run they turn out to have no lasting significance or value.
If you live holy life in Christ Jesus, your family may forsake you if you refuse to renounce your faith in Christ, your friends may forsake you, and anyone in the world will forsake you and stop talking and listening to you. You will also have to forsake your past life. If you desire to save your friends, family and your idols you will for sure lose your eternal life. If you gain your life in this world you will lose eternal life in the afterlife. No one has made it to heaven who did not take the narrow path of salvation which entailed losing a lot of things on this earth.
You should choose to follow Jesus Christ despite the challenges and tribulations that the devil will bring infront of you in your walk with Christ Jesus. When you start coming to Jesus Christ the devil will attack you. The devil is jealous of you and will do anything do derail you from Jesus Christ. That is why the lord Jesus Christ said whoever chooses to follow him should carry his or her own cross. Jesus Christ knew that the way to the kingdom of God is not easy and that is why he adviced his followers to carry their cross. The way to the kingdom of God is full of snakes and scorpions. When i say snakes, i mean that man is a snake to man, man is a wolf to man, and man is a scorption to man.
Following Jesus Christ may lead us to experience alot of trouble coming from the devil and his children on this earth. Forsake everything in order to be with Jesus Christ. Everything that offends God lose it for the well being of your soul. Read the word of God and be a doer of the word, for only the doers of the word will be justified. There is no benefit or priviledge if a man shall gain the whole world and loose his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? Lose everything that offends God in order to have a healthy realationship with him and at last attain eternal glory in heaven. Be blessed in Jesus Christ mighty name and have good time.
