Today is PCL and once again we will learn at the feet of Jesus what it means to live a life lost to Jesus…. alleluia!

Paul said I count all things loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ. (Phil.3:8).

Beloveth, Peter, one of the disciples of Jesus also ask Him  “Lo, we have left all and followed Thee… and hear what Jesus answered him (Lk 18:28-29).

We are also interested in what is it for us when we lose our life for Christ sake… our text for today has an answer for us… so the question is have you come to the point of losing your life for the sake of gospel of our Lord Jesus…. or if it comes to that what will you do? Leave your Master and run or stand by Him no matter what may be….

Come along with us for more:

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it.—Matthew 16:25

Christians are commanded to lose their lives. This means they ought to deliberately release their lives to God and His kingdom. One of the greatest hindrances to you being on mission with God will be your view of what constitutes your “legitimate rights”; that is, those things that you feel you have a right to experience and enjoy.

It’s not difficult to turn over to Christ those things that are not a sacrifice or that you would prefer to do without anyway. Rather, it is the things that are good and that are dear to you that may stand between you and God’s will.

It’s good to be near your grown children and grandchildren, for example, but God may want you to go to another city or continent on mission with Him. It’s good to get adequate rest, but you may receive a call of distress in the middle of the night. You may assume that you have a right to certain material things, yet God may ask you to release all of your possessions to Him and His purposes (Matt. 19:21).

Jesus modeled perfectly this attitude toward life. He had a legitimate right to enjoy the comforts of heaven. Yet, He did not look at it as a right He should hold on to, nor did He see leaving all that was His as a sacrifice too costly to make (Phil. 2:5–11). As a result, God highly exalted Him and brought salvation to a broken world.

Has the world convinced you that there are certain rights that you must protect? Are you trying to save your life? Have you noticed that in so doing, you are actually losing the life God wants you to have?

Beloveth, let us like Paul the Apostle count all things dung for the excellency in knowing Him (Christ)… as we do that we see God manifest His power more in our lives… we will not deny Christ in the face of crisis and troubles around us… Amen!!!

Have a glorious weekend … Pray for God’s Awesome demonstration of His power in your life Amen… See you on Monday by God’s grace…. Alleluia!!!!!!!!!!!
