A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Do you want to know one of the most solid evidences of true salvation? “Dying to sin and living for Christ!”

We will for sure lose our lives, but for what and/or for whom are we now living?

Do you want to find your life after death? Lose it for Christ!

 

DAY # 173

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO LOSE OUR LIFE FOR CHRIST

Matthew 10:32-39 "Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 "But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. 34 "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 "For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter–in–law against her mother–in–law’; 36 "and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 "He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.39 "He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.
Matthew 16:25 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

GAINING ETERNAL LIFE IN HIM

Mark 8:35 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.
Luke 9: 23-26 Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. 24 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. 25 "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? 26 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.
Luke 17: 25-32 "But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 "And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 "They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 "Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 "but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 "Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 "In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 "Remember Lot’s wife. 33 "Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
