Deny Thyself

Deny Thyself

Jesus calls for us to bear our crosses, but he does not ask without also carrying his own. The expectation that we sacrifice for one another is deeply rooted in the example of Jesus. We are warned that following Jesus will lead to rejection and suffering, but let us never forget that he was rejected and suffered first, as our example.

Our scriptures this week include the passage Chess is discussing, Mark 8:31-38, as well as Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16, Psalm 22:23-31 and Romans 4:13-25.

    999good news that doesn’t sound like good news

    get behind me Satan
    see past the cross
    would we celebrate our own suffering
    story does not end at cross
    resurrection reign
    pain lasts a minute but glory lasts forever
    2nd way to rationalize suffering – assign positive meaning to the horror
    follow Him into His suffering – follow His example
    why do we have to suffer?
    save our life by losing it
    teachings suffering
    for the benefit of others
    holding on to hope
    our pain good news to others
    find our own cross but good news to be had
    gospel in our suffering
