First Post – Am I Denying Myself Daily?

“Then he [Jesus] said to them all: ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.  For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.'” (Luke 9:23-24)

What did the Lord Jesus Christ mean by these words?  How does one practically lose his life?  In what ways are we to deny ourselves?  What does it mean to take up ones cross?

As I work through trying to understand the answer to these and other questions and as I try to discern the practical implications of being a true follow of Jesus, I plan to post my thoughts on this blog. 

I plan to also post short anecdotes describing experiences from my life. I’ll try to limit those to interesting incidents and cut out the “I had raisin bran for breakfast” type of detail.

I’ll also share my thoughts on any books I may be reading, especially any that have to do with being a Disciple of Christ.

However, I particularly hope that you – the spellbound reader – will feel free to comment on any posts of interest. I envision this blog to be interactive.
