• Denying Self
  • Everything I have

    “Jesus came humbly as a servant, but He never begs us to give Him some small part of ourselves. He commands everything from His followers.” – Francis Chan, Crazy Love. Think about that statement. Quite challenging isn’t it? I have just been reading the book “Crazy Love” and I came across that statement. It made […]

  • Check that attitude
  • Can’t we just send them away?

    “The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. And He said to them, ‘Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.’ For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a […]

  • Really? Every Day?

However, I […]

  • Denying Self
  • Living A Denied Life

    “Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me‘” Matthew 16:24 (ESV) This verse clearly shows that Christ wants me to deny myself. He also wants all those who follow Him to do the same. It is so important, that this command is […]
